Hopewell Furnace NHS Establishment Day

July 28, 2011

Saturday, August 6 is the annual celebration of the establishment of Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site. There will be the ceremonial lighting of the fire to make charcoal—a reenactment of the activity that once took place all around here and that has shaped the forest that has grown back. The event runs 10 am – 4 pm and is free of charge. Stop by Crow’s Nest Preserve for a walk on the way over or back from nearby Hopewell Furnace.
