Peninsular Stove Co. - Artifacts

This beautiful piece stands proudly in the restaged kitchen of the Lodge House (Packard Proving Grounds, Shelby Township, MI). It was manufactured by the Peninsular Stove Company back in the day, and it’s been kept in exceptional condition since those early days. Originally, the kitchen featured an electric stove when the Vincents lived in the Lodge House. The stove now in residence is a late-1920s gas model, manufactured in Detroit by the Peninsular Stove Company.
