An Interesting Discovery in Madison County.
Another opportunity for me to enlighten you with another fun fact that will make you the life of the cocktail party! Did you know that British inventor, James Sharp patented a gas oven in 1826? The first semi-successful gas oven to appear on the market. Pictured here rusting away in an old barn was state of the art in the 20s and 30s. It's a Wincroft combination wood/gas stove. You can still see some of the porcelain finish which was a big technological leap forward making the stove easier for the little lady to clean.
