A potbelly stove is a cast-iron wood-burning stove, round with a bulge in the middle. The name is derived from the resemblance of the stove to a fat man's pot belly. They were used to heat large rooms and were often found in train stations or one-room schoolhouses. The flat top of the fireplace allowed for cooking food or heating water.
