The furnace and preserved buildings are curated by The Nature Conservancy. There are lovely walks under the loblolly pines and the signs and descriptive text help it come alive. This is a good place to visit on a hot day, it is shady and lovely.

A fun visit to a historical recreation. The village is continually growing, it's nice to watch it expand.

I went to Furnace Town with my sons ( tween and teen) last month. While they weren't particularly excited about the leaning opportunity presented to them, they did find items of interest and they really enjoyed interacting with a blacksmith who took time to explain...More
