Cooking prep in Cornish Flat

  • Gary Chilton, of Cornish, left, greets Dana LaPan’s dog Shadow, as LaPan reassembles a wood cook stove in his Cornish Flat, N.H., antique stove showroom Wednesday, July 30, 2020. LaPan, of Meriden, was given an antique wood cook stove by his grandmother 16 years ago and spent about 10 years finding the necessary parts to repair and reassemble it. In the process, he began to build a business restoring the stoves and is now set to open the showroom on Saturday in part of the former Cornish General Store. “It’s a supersized jigsaw puzzle,” said LaPan. “It’s nice to take something that’s all rusty and broken, and make it shiny and new again.” (Valley News - James M.
