About Hearth
In common historic and modern usage, a hearth (Har-th) is a brick- or stone-lined fireplace or oven used for cooking and/or heating. Because of its nature, in historic times the hearth was considered an integral part of a home, often its central or most important feature: its Latin name is focus. This concept has been generalized to refer to a homeplace or household, as in the terms "hearth and home" and "keep the home fires burning."
In fireplace and stove design, the hearth is often considered the visible elements of the fireplace or stove, with emphasis upon the floor level extension of masonry associated with the fireplace mantel.
