Join local historian Andre Weltman to see the furnace “head race” and “slag heap,” a man-made mountain of waste products from smelting iron. Meet at the Old Stone Furnace Stack for an introductory presentation on these topics, then walk ½ mile on very uneven terrain, moderate slopes, and a little mud -- wear proper footwear. Please allow 2 hours for this program. You are free to leave whenever you would like. 

If you need an accommodation to participate in park activities due to a disability, please contact the park you plan to visit. With at least seven days’ notice, interpreters for people who are deaf or hard of hearing are available for programs.
