The Iron Furnaces of Adams County
with John Wickerham, Adams County Historical Society
Thursday, April 12, 5:15 p.m. to 6:15 p.m.
In the early 1800s Adams County had three iron furnaces that smelted the iron ore found in local rocks to make “pig iron.” These furnaces provided much-needed jobs and products for early settlers in the county. The furnaces also had a major influence on the surrounding forests, as countless acres of trees were cut to make charcoal to fire the furnaces. Learn more about this fascinating industry with respected local history authority John Wickerham.
