Woodstoves have been around since the 16th century in Europe but gained popularity by inventors like Ben Franklin in the 1740's due to safety issues with fireplaces and wood shortages, and again in the 1970's during the oil crisis. No matter what people to use to warm their home, whether it be gas, oil or electric, nothing warms you to the bone like a wood burning fire. The old saying goes, "Wood warms you thrice, when you chop it, when you stack it, and when you burn it."
