Fireplaces & Franklin Stoves - Add Ambiance of a Wood Fire in Any Room
Manufactured C. 1840 - 1940 ~ We Convert Heating Stoves to Propane, Gas and Electric
Invented by Ben Franklin, one of America's most important and innovative forefather's, this free-standing fireplace holds a special place in American history. The Pennsylvania Fireplace is an 8-plated cast iron fireplace that can be placed in any room where a built-in fireplace is unavailable.
The Pennsylvania Fireplace, also known as The Franklin Style Stove offers a cleaner, more efficient alternative to the traditional fireplace while still offering the timeless appeal and charm and full view of a burning fire. Later improvements to Franklin's original design included the addition of hinged or removable doors and decorated guards to prevent coal and ash from spilling onto the floor.
