Baby Sevca Stove

Questions & AnswersWe bought a house that has a wood stove that has "Baby Sevca" and the former owner's initials embossed on it in a rustic manner. The initials are reversed at the back of the stove. It looks like a very hand-made stove.

We are wondering if anyone knows of he history of the stove...are there others out there? It is such a good stove, still serves well and it has such humor...we are wondering what that time was like in Brattleboro.

Thanks in advance

    The SEVCA Stove Works was established in th '70s to make a locally usable product (Stoves) using locally available materials (scrap gas tanks) and local labor.
    The stoves were very efficient and were given good reviews in environmental magazines such as "Mother Earth News". Their demise came from competition by newer, prettier models from companies like Vermont Castings. I believe that a few of the original employees are still making them to order locally.
    Many were sold worldwide and many are still in use. That stove is a Keeper!
    For more information, I suggest you call SEVCA (Southern Vermont Community Action) at 802-722-4575.
