The Pot belly stove is an American classic heating railroad depots and cabooses. The pot belly stove accompanied many American pioneers as they traversed this country for the first time by locomotive. These portly heaters found a second home in public buildings ad gathering places establishing these barrel stoves as the center piece of social activity in schools, in churches, town halls and meeting houses. And of course, the local general store. Named for its bulging center, the potbelly burns wood or coal. Coming in a variety of sizes, they can heat from 2-5 rooms when fully loaded. A ribbed body augments the total heat output through increasing the surfaces area from which heat escapes.
