What we believe to be a coal stove. It has fittings for pipes coming into and out of the stove, probably for pipes for a steam or hot water heat system. This stove was just down the hillside from the newer room of the 2-room school in Alpine, Washington. A few weeks after we found this stove I found a radiator in the brush abut 10 feet away from the stove, nearly covered in dirt. It seems likely that the stove and radiator were part of the heating system in the school at Alpine. At an elevation of more than 1800 feet the school would have been surrounded by snow for as long as 7 months in some years. This stove kept the students and teacher warm.
