    Does anyone know about cast iron stoves?

    I dug this the other day and just took it out of electrolysis. It was dug at a hotel site that was there between 1840-1930. I have dug several stove related items at this location including dampers, coal shovels, and ax heads. Any ideas on the manufacturer or date based on the design?

    Given the arch and flatness of it, I wonder if it could be a section of an old cast iron fireplace surround?

    I actually thought that too but the bracket on the back made me question it.

    Looks like the top section of a cast iron fireplace surround or mantel.
    If you could provide some measurements or take a pic with something for scale that would be helpful.

    Nice find. I think being a stove part is correct.

    Hotel

    This is what the hotel looked like. 1840 - 1933. There is nothing left there now except a wooded lot. When the hotel was in it's heyday there were 5 cottages and a store on the property for guests. There was also a train station across the street. It was a busy place.

    I don't think it's ever been hunted either. We find a lot of things just laying on top of the ground. The only issue is the amount of modern trash. Its everywhere.

    Whats really funny is... there was little to move things... like a "dolly" OR even pavement to roll a dolly on... sheesh

    IT was... grab some of the "help" / "workers" dealio.

    *** OH crap Martha is moving again... get the town to help us. ***

    And wtf... THEY HAD HORSES and carnages... BUGGY:S pulled etc...

    All one can think is...

    SHEESH... poor horses. heh

    I guess they thought "heavier and bigger is better".

    You would think they would have come with aluminum a lot sooner :P
