SPLIT ROCK FURNACE WALK
Saturday, April 22
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!
