I'm having trouble finding any info on an old cast iron stove I just found. Maybe someone here can help?

P&B Mfg Nashville, Enterprise Water Heater No 288

It is not very big. Probably weighs around 150 to 200 lbs. Has two circular removable lids on top, two small threaded openings on the back, a door on the front with vent and a removable plate on the front towards the top with the info embedded.

Would like some info on how it is supposed to operate, year made, and some info about the mfg would be nice. Hope you all can help. Thanks!

seems to be a run on that style stove as of late-- people more knowledgable then me on it will chime in I'm sure-- good job posting the pix. My understanding is that it was used to heat up laundry water back when. It looks in decent shape. Depemds what the insides look like as far as functionality. (I suspect those threaded holes would be for a heating coil attached to a water supply--there's another post--Birmingham ??? Queen--check it out. You done good, you've got the bottom stand:)
