c1850s Coal Stove

Shared Services, a non-profit that helps the handicapped, came across a c1850s coal stove and on the advice of our good friend Toni Anne Kistner donated it to HPHA. This stove is very similar to the original stove that had been installed by the Penroses, probably when they built the kitchen addition to the Penrose Strawbridge House in 1858. That stove, which was in use probably up until Mrs Strawbridge's death in 1996, fell apart when we tried to move it in the early days of our restoration.
