Even though I have already posted a lot about my Glenwood No. 6 Baseburner, I have been asked to do a more detailed description of it for further examination. It is therefore, my pleasure to do so. If I have skipped anything important let me know. Last fall I bought a two story log house up in the Pocono's of PA. I needed a stove to heat the house during the cold winters up here. I decided to buy a Glenwood Baseheater. I originally wanted a No. 8 but the stove dealer didn't have one at the moment so I bought the next size down which is a No. 6. I wanted the best, most efficient stove I could afford and the Glenwood fit the bill. After a winter spent with it I firmly believe I couldn't have spent my money any better. The Glenwood cost $2000, a price that is not much different than most new stoves on the market. My Glenwood was manufactured in June of 1909.
