The real answer to where the name GLEN came from is that the original builders of the stoves used to enjoy a bottle of Glenlivet single malt scotch while building away. Hence, the name GLEN. Apparently they had too much of a good thing and made the mistake of calling it a Glenwood, instead of a Glencoal. I thought everyone knew that....Gary

Well, at the start a man named Wilbur designed the stove & his partners, Walker & Baker did the assembling making 4 stoves per day---that's pretty good me thinks----eventually Walker became foundry foreman & Baker hit the road selling. I found nothing pertaining to how the name Glenwood came to be.

Fred, I found the same article. Interesting to see who actually purchased the company in 1978. Is that the next trivia question...unfortunately much easier found.

It was either going to be CohannetWood or Glenwood (think they chose the right name?) ;)

Clearly the wood portion was because the these were wood cook stoves originally and became so well known and so sought after because of one special feature they had (the ability to dump 100% of the ash directly into the basement, something no other kitchen stove had at the time)... telltail that the lady of the house ruled this domain ;) .... trademarked at that point it was like money in the bank to keep that name because at that point it was so well known by every housewife across the nation :lol:
