    1. Thank you, David, for your comments!
      Currently, we are only using images that are within the Everett Museum of History collection for postings. For instance, the images in this post are accessions 20031811 and 20031817. To make sure that everyone has access to these images, we should be providing the accession numbers, which will make it easier for anyone who will want to make a research request when we open in a permanent facility.

      1. thank-you so much for the article and pictures- I have just aquired a what I believe to be a 1921 “panama” edition stove, do you know if there are any pictures or date info to be had? thank-you

  2. Hello,
    we picked up a Everett Stove Works No. 17 pot belly stove for free at a yard sale last weekend. We dont know how old it is or if its rare. I’m thinking it might be rare, especially if its an old one, as i’ve never seen another stove that was made in Everett. Would the Everett Historical Museum be at all interested in having it?
    My mother wants to use it in the yard. I’d hate to see just rusting away out there if its something that should be preserved.
    There are some broken bits on it but it does have everything with it except the feet.

    1. Hello Fred, thank you for thinking of us for your donation. Our acquisition committee would be happy to consider your generous offer and will give a reply within the next few weeks. Thank you again!

  3. I am up here in Cordova AK at Orca Adventure Lodge. This used to be a cannery and New England Fisheries from New Bedford MA started it, I velieve.

    Anyway, there is a big industrial stove in the cook house, probably 10-12 feet long. The only identifying marks on it are 2-30-98, Washington Stove Works, Everett, WA. Obviously, there was no Feb 30, 1898, so if not a serial # or whatever, how might I identify this stove, its age, where it was manufactured . . . anything at all??

    Thanks,

  4. Hello,

    I just bought a Washington Stove works, Everet, Wa. # 77 pot belly stove. My cousin said he got it years ago from a government warehouse and as he said ” It doesn’t look like it was ever used.
    I can’t believe it myself. No rust and so clean. It could use a little blackening just for looks sake for that perfect shine but I bet just a soapy wash and dry would do it well too. Other then a bit of dust she is so beautiful.

    Can you tell me where to go to find it’s age and worth. I bought it to resell.

    Thanks so much,
    Connie

    1. Hello Connie,
      EMOH staff cannot provide appraisals of your artifact’s monetary value. We are more than happy to offer historical and artistic context for the artifact that you own. This should be done by appointment, which can be facilitated by e-mail, including photographs and any other information you can provide. The museum can provide a general list of qualified appraisers in the region for your convenience, but we are not able to make specific recommendations.

  5. I live in a very old house in Bremerton, WA. There’s an old Washington Stove Works wood stove stored in the basement. Along with the company name and the word Everett, it has a number 26 on the inside back area. It doesn’t have a cook top on it so I imagine it was just for heating. Can you give me any info on this stove, like perhaps what year it might be from?

  6. I am restoring a No 24, Washington Stove works Parlor Stove which I presume was built between 1880 and 1910. It has the cooking top with the beautiful decorative top which can be removed for cooking. Can anyone verify the age. The decorative top is chromed, but has been painted over and is probably beyond my finances to have re-chromed, but I am considering it.

    1. Thank you for your inquiry regarding your Washington Stove Works (WSW) parlor stove. Unfortunately, while we wait for a permanent museum facility, all of our WSW materials are in storage and we do not have easy access to the records. I would suggest contacting the Everett Public Library’s Northwest Room. They may have WSW catalogs available.

      Sorry we couldn’t be of additional help but good luck with your restoration. If we are able to access our records in the near future, we will let you know.
