Coal furnace in the Korns farmhouse, Southampton Township, Somerset County.

Coal furnace in the Korns family farmhouse

This 2008 photo was taken in the basement of the currently uninhabited 19th century Southampton Township, Somerset County family farmhouse that belonged to Daniel Korns, Jr., then to John Wilson Korns, then to Allen Korns. The photo shows the coal furnace that was used to heat the house.

A chain went from the furnace to the living room so that some type of adjustment could be made to the furnace from the living room.
