I heat my house and cook and bake with a cook stove. Nothing better! Check for trouble (burned out areas around the oven box). Cracks and such in the cast around the fire box and ash pan. If there are no cracks or burned out areas or dramatic warp in the cast iron top then she should be alright. Important to clean under the lids and all around the oven box. Make sure the brick in the fire box is intact. The internet has a bunch of good sites on restoration. There are companies out there that will do full restorations too although they can be costly but a family piece can be worth every penny. Good luck. Can't wait to see pic of the old girl!

I'd love to see pictures of it restored. :) It might make you a nice winter project.

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again

Considering the age of it, the stove doesn't appear to be in that bad of shape.
It will definitely be a project, but I personally think it would be worth it to get it as cleaned up as possible! :)

Well i finished digging it out, but for sure i can not move it myself. I did find that the firebox needs repaired, and now my husband grandmother wants to fix it up and put it in her living room....go figure. But here are some of the latest pics of it. I haven't gotten it moved out of the foundation yet, but i got all the junk moved out away from it, just not at the time of the pics LOL.

Very neat! There a ton of sites that talk about how to care/clean just google that can sort of walk you through the process. It doesn't hurt for the temp gauge to be cracked - they aren't accurate anyways,lol, I have one right inside on the cooking rack - the stove makers sent it with. So nice to hang on to the work horses even just have as a (very large) ornament. :)
