ON THE TRAIL OF HISTORY

_IGP3297

Located in Lebanon County, the Cornwall Iron Furnace was built in 1742 and stayed in operation until 1883.  Now a museum for everyone to Tour and see how Iron was made long ago.

Called a Abattoir, this Gothic Revival structure served as a smoke house and butcher shop for the Cornwall Iron Estate.

This was the Iron Masters home.  Now used as apartments.

In 1875 this was the Paymasters Office for the Iron Furnace.  Now used as a Art Studio.

The Manager’s Office & Home.  The Furnace Manager was ranked 2nd in command to the Owner.  After 1916, Bethlehem Steel also used this building as it’s Cornwall Office.

Thank you.
