HOPEWELL IRON

This is the main working area of Hopewell Village where the Iron Furnace was located.  The Furnace is in the inside of the building.  The covered area above the stone wall was where charcoal was hauled back and forth from the Fire Pit by wheel barrow and wagon.  The Barn was where charcoal was stored.

  • Lovely photos, especially the first one. This is one of the places I have been meaning to check out since moving to PA. I think we will visit once the weather is definitely more Spring-like.
