"Cast from the Past"

Ginger Creek Antique Stoves

The Bell 120  was said to have been owned originally by Teddy Roosevelt's cook. 

But really, it looks like it's been right there in southern Ohio all along.

Made by Fuller and Warren of Troy, NY,  the owners of this gorgeous large oak stove initially rescued it from their family cabin in the Adirondacks, then brought to us here in N. Carolina for a full restoration. They then brought it back to their beautiful home in Pennsylvania, and soon, they will headed to Texas, where it will be hooked up and ready to glow through those big mica windows. This stove can travel! Stay tuned for an update from Dallas : )

'The Landing' museum at Three Rivers Park in Shakopee, MN is a great place to visit and learn about our American history, as it was lived in its original setting. To find out more, visit their website at: 


The Jewett 'Alert' No. 25, 1868 antique box stove, is featured at 'The Landing', a museum in Shakopee, Minnesota.  (formerly 'Murhpy's Landing'). It has been put right into use in the 1850's farmhouse there at the living museum. Here, Brenda is making bean soup and fried corn mush.

Betty gets a good amount of use in her beautiful new home, for breakfast, biscuits, pies, and dinner, too. Also, in the colder weather she warms up the upstairs of the house as well.

Betty's original home was in Plymouth, New Hampshire.

They have combined the look of the new modern construction and the ornate antique stoves. What an impressive effect!  And more to come...

This is the first time the Florence was fired up since being restored. -And maybe the first time in over 50 years or more!  This mountain home, with a view of Grandfather Mountain, is being restored, too!

The New Globe Hot Blast found its perfect home high in the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee. (it gets cold there!)

And the Garland 200E, a very historic oak stove, found its way there, too.

The Garland has a very special significance to its new owner, as he worked with the newer Garland restaurant stoves extensively in his career as a chef.

Not many of the original Garland Oak heaters are anywhere to be found. This one surely found its right place!

New Globe Hot Blast No. 718

Each antique stove is unique and individual. They all have a lot of history behind them.  "If they could only talk!"

Here are a few of the stoves we've restored, in their new homes.

Went from Belews Creek, N. Carolina, to Ginger Creek Stoves, N. Carolina, and then to its new home back where it originated, in its home state of Pennsylvania. Absolutely perfect setting!

Back in commission, as it was intended to be. Wow!  This really shows what the reflector does. That's not another window up there, that is a reflection of the fire. And the dragon head wings look to be in charge!

Now rescued and restored, and in its new home in N. Carolina.
