Quick Description: Manufactured in Jacksonville Florida. Hope they waited until a train could bring it to Nevada. When there was no electricity, this was the primary source to heat a room, cook meals, hot water always ready.
Location: California, United States

Long Description:
Several someones had to maintain a woodpile of the right length and size firewood. It had to fit through the stove door.
In addition, the ashes had to be shoveled out several times a week when it was in daily use. The vertical flu spread heat into the room. The coil on the door was a "cold" handle. This model was large enough to provide two cooking rings.
Saw one of these online for $500 recently.
