S-228, Old Senate Chamber

U.S. Senate Collection

In addition to four fireplaces, the Old Senate Chamber was heated by two obelisk-shaped Franklin stoves capable of burning wood or coal. Today, two reproduction stoves stand in the original semi-circular niches on either side of the room's main entrance.
