R.V. Pasco, stove maker

Published by:

RV Pasco.pngHaven’t been able to learn much about R.V. Pasco, whose 1863 ad appears here. He was one of many stove makers and dealers in the area at a time when the Capital District was the stove capital of the country. His was one of the few businesses in Greenbush (now Rensselaer) that advertised in the Albany directory, but this was at a time when the railroading business in Greenbush was starting to boom and perhaps residents on the eastern side of the river were numerous enough, and cold enough to need their own stove maker.
