Description:
Mark the location of iron furnace ruins here. These old industrial remains will often take you to great, out-of-the-way locations.
Expanded Description:
Iron furnaces, used to convert iron ore to pig iron, were a staple of the early industrial age. Several of my favorite geocaches have introduced me to these historic structures. Often found in isolated locations deep in the woods next to a water source, iron furnace ruins mark what used to be a center of busy industrial activity. Here is a good website that describes the history of iron furnaces and provides links to many individual furnace locations. Go find these, and any others from anywhere in the world!
Instructions for Posting a Iron Furnace Ruins Waymark:
Please post one or more photos showing the ruins of the iron furnace. Include any history that you're able to find about the iron furnace, including links to any web pages. In the box provided, specify the period during which the furnace was in active use. (This is broken right now, since the date range only goes back to 1905, but Groundspeak is working on a better long-term solution.) Rate the overall condition of the iron furnace ruins. Some are crumbling piles of rock, while others are largely intact!
