Dutch Oven?

Hi all, I hope the pic shows up. It shows what my dad used to call a "Dutch" oven. Essentially the house was built around it. The house and oven were built in the 1840s. I'll be retiring in a few years and when the day arrives to walk away from my job, I will want to sell my house, it's far too big. The oven has never been fired during my life time. It's all brick. It measures approximately 5ft tall, 4ft wide and 6ft deep. The upper most chamber is where one would bake their bread, pizza, etc...; the lower most chamber is for a fire to keep the middle "shelf" warm where one would place the bread, pizza, etc... until it's time to be eaten. The round disk in the lower left corner I believe may be a draft control of some type. Anyone know who I should contact who may specialize in bringing these units back to life? Thanks in advance. Roger

I don't think there is too much involved in bringing it back to life.
A chimney sweep would probably be all you need.
