Century Stove Company. Of this organization George E. Wilbur is the president and George L. Walker is the efficient treasurer and agent. The plant is equipped with spacious shops and storerooms, that of the moulding room covering an area of 150 by 50 feet, while another building of the same dimensions, two stories in height, is used for office and storage, pattern shops, etc. The stoves manufactured by the Century Stove Company are always of the finest grades in finish, artistic in form and up to date in those qualities so indispensable to perfect heating or baking. Among manyof their makes maybe mentioned the celebrated Parlor Century Square, the Parlor and Round Century and Pride Century and "Our Century" in all sizes. A force of sixty five skilled men find employment in these works. Their trade is confined mostly to New England, yet their stoves and ranges find a ready market in nearly all the States east of the Rocky Mountains. George E. Wilbur, president of the company, is largely interested in stove manufacturing and is the president of the Weir Stove Company of Taunton, and a prominent resident of that city. George L. Walker is also a resident of Taunton and a brother of William E. Walker, general manager of the Weir Stove Co.

Vols., and is a member of Bartlett Post No. 3, G. A. R., of Taunton; also Narragansett Lodge, F. & A. M., of Fall River, and Sabolica Lodge No. 225, I. O. O. F., of Fall River.
