History Of The Fireplace Center
The Fireplace Center started in 1960 when Ted and Ida Dahl started selling fireplace glass doors. Wood stoves were added to the line-up in the 70’s, and in 1980 Tom Koelzer bought the Dahl’s out. Our current President, Trevor Craig, started in 1989 and was soon joined by his brother-in-law Paul Koelzer and his brother Renzy Craig.
The brothers bought the business from Tom in 2000 and expanded to Bozeman in 2002 and Kalispell in 2004. Through careful product selection and a commitment to the customer, the Fireplace Center has grown into the largest fireplace retailer in the state and one of the largest in the Northwest. However, we pride ourselves on our family business atmosphere.
