i just purchased a kalamazoo kitchen wood stove, with in side of door is president kalamazoo stove co. kalamazoo. michigan , the oven gauge has the date of 1922 on it insde where the brass needle is. it is white with black trim, and has a warming closet on top, and is not the water reserve type, my grandmother hade one like this and i know she was as poor as you could get, for many times all we had to eat was bread and the feet of the chicked, and lard spread on bread with sugar to eat, but i hold these close to my heart, any infor on this stove greatly needed, is in very good shape, was in chicken coop for years, thak you vicki parks

Dear Vicki, I don't know if you have found your answer or not yet but check out this site it might help. http://www.kpl.gov/collections/LocalHistory/AllAbout/businesses/KalStove/KalStove.aspx

I am from upstate New York and my parents had a camp that was struck by lightening May of 2004, it had a Kalamazoo wood stove in it that we were able to save. My husband and I are now in the process of remodeling a forclosure camp for this years snowmobiling season and we are going to put the Kalamzoo in our camp. They had it for 20 years and I was doing some research when I came across your letter asking for help. I don't even know what year ours is, at least you have some idea. So I have to dig deeper. All I know is it takes at least 4 men to carry it :0)

well i guess pasta came from poverty: sometimes all the women would have is eggs & flour so the challenge was - how many things can be made with that?

lard sandwich ay? yup that's oldtime. heh heh - whenever mom would bake bread in her woodstove, i'd tear a loaf apart, scoop from a quart of canned tomatoes & sprinkle sugar on that! why, you never ate better! :)
