Looking for Stove

Modern and vintage hand fired coal stove are similar to a wood stove and in some cases can burn either. They need to be regulated and fed by hand usually every 12 to 24 hours depending on your usage. They require no power to operate making them ideal for rural settings with long power outages.

Not too many Glenwoods made it west of the Hudson River to central NY. I'd suggest checking the New England Craig's List daily. That's where most were sold and most turn up.

So many stoves - so few chimneys. I must be coal-stone crazy.
