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 historic buildings stand, open and inviting — testaments to the strength and endurance of Hopewell’s people.
The park is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily from Wednesday to Sunday (closed Mon/Tues) including Memorial Day, Independance Day, Labor Day, and Columbus Day.
