SPLIT ROCK FURNACE WALK
Rockaway, NJ
Saturday, April 22
10:00 AM

Led by Joe Macasek and Bierce Riley. This walk offers a rare opportunity to visit Morris County's only standing iron furnace and to explore the remnants of the village that supported its operation. This site has had a long and complex history starting in the 1790s and lasting well into the 1880s, a tribute to several generations of family ownership and technical innovations. The visit will include a look at the impressive stone furnace stack, the forge site and an examination of the archeological remains of this once-thriving community. This is an archeology hike with a moderate amount of off-trail walking, sometimes over uneven terrain. Come equipped with sturdy shoes and a lot of imagination!

To register for this tour or for more information, email Joe at macgraphics1@verizon.net. For a map and directions, please CLICK here. If you wish to use public transportation, we can accommodate a small number of people arriving by NJ Transit at the Morristown Train Station. If you plan to come by train, please let us know by e-mail in advance.

This tour is sponsored by Industrial Heritage Walks, a programof the Morris County Park Commission. Fee $5.00.
