THE BETHEL JOURNALS—BUNNY KIMBALL’S ROADSIDE MUSEUM, STORE AND OLD STOVES

Stopping by Bunny Kimball’s Store in West Bethel

In a December 1980 Advertiser Democrat story about the original stoves, Mr. Kimball tells the reporter that his wife Jeannette using an “original stove” can cook a steak faster than using a microwave oven. Also the article summarizes the Kimball stove history:  In the 1930’s the Kimball aunts and uncles started collecting these “original” stoves when most people thought that they didn’t need them anymore.

For many years I have meant to stop and get a close-up look at what he had to offer. But I had no idea of the extent of his antiques and collectibles display in the house and stored in five old school buses behind the house and barn.
