    Thanks everyone, i'll give it my best shot, it has to have been in the foundation for the last 25-30+ years, it was my husbands grand parent's stove and they had it and I believe they got it from his great grand parents. I'll dig it out and see what it will need and see how much it would take to fix it up, we may not get rid of it because of familial legacy there....it's rather interesting. It weighs a ton....thanks!! :-D

    I would fix it up! My fav way to reheat fried chicken at work during the winter is to wrap it in alumanium foil, and set it on top of the wood stove we use to heat the building! In less than 10 minuets I have hot chicken without the rubbery taste that a microwave gives re-heated chicken. It litterly tastes like it's fresh from the fryer! I would fix it up just for that purpose. I can't wait for winter just so I can have my hot chicken again! If you havent ever tried heating chicken on a wood stove! What are you waiting for?

    If you get it back in to operation, nothing taste better than bread done in the oven. Modern stoves can't duplicate how the wood stove cooks it.

    Thanks everyone!! So far it's not in too rough of shape, really needs cleaned up, and oiled. Still didn't get any of the doors opened yet!

    In excited to see it too! Awesome family treasure!
    It would be so cool to have something that fed generations of my family. I stole my grandmas iron skillet, she'd been using it since before my mother was born.

    (Didnt steal it really :), it's one of my favorite treasures from her, given to me with love!)

    I'd really love to see pictures of this thing restored! One of our family farms - I say one of because my grandparents own multiple properties - this one though has been in the family for at least 4 generations that I know of, my great grandfather built the house that now stands on the property, I believe his father or grandfather may have built the barns and homes that used to stand on the property - though they all burnt to the ground in a very unfortunate incident a few years back. Any who, there's a bunch of old things around the property and in the current home, including a stove like this one you have pictured (hard to tell from picture), ours was bought new in around the 1920s I want to say. It is fully restored and works just as it would have originally. My uncle lives in the house now and uses no other stove but this one. It is his means to cook, make the coffee, and heat the home. Someday I would absolutely love one to myself.

    Not sure about fully restoring it, I don't know of many people around me who would do it or know how to. But i'll give it my best shot. Didn't get to finish digging it out and moving it for better pics, got side tracked with work n all...as soon as I take them i'll post them for ya'll to see!!
