77 - hodgson stove


Fort St. John North Peace Museum

Stoves were the heart of the home and early Peace River pioneers went through a lot of trouble to get them here! Martha Louise Hodgson brought this stove from Regina, Saskatchewan to her British Columbia homestead with her husband, John, in 1930-1931. The Northern Alberta Railway only reached as far as Hythe, Alberta at that point, so a horse and wagon carried the stove over the Peace River hills.This stove was used in the Hodgson’s first log house up the hill from Taylor. It was left behind when they built a newer home.
