Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site
Hot, smoky, noisy—these words describe how Hopewell Furnace looked from 1771 to 1883. Hopewell and other "iron plantations" laid the foundations for America's iron and steel industry. Today, the site stands as an example of America's development during the Industrial Revolution.
The site offers exhibits, tours, and occasional recreational and educational events (including living history events).
