      Kewanee made boilers for over 130 years, starting in the late 1800's. They sold the name to another corporation around 2003. They were the best of the best in terms of Commercial Hydronic Heating Boilers, (imo). I will take a guess that yours doors are from the 1930-1950 time frame. Very Cool looking Pieces of History!
