James Macintosh Bell (long-time former resident of Almonte and owner of "Old Burnside") was a geologist. On the corner of his grand home overlooking the Mississippi River swirling about Metcalfe Park at the bottom of Bay Hill is a circular stone tower. The Tower is constructed as an obvious addition to the main house. Reportedly Mr. Bell maintained a rock collection in a conservatory at the top portion of the tower. I suspect he would have approved of the new stove!
