Eliza Furnace

The Eliza Furnace, on the Ghost Town Trail in Vintondale, PA is a good place to take a break on your trail ride to learn about the early iron making industry. The furnace operated from 1846 to 1849 and was one of three iron furnaces located in the Blacklick Creek Valley. Eliza Furnace is regarded as one of Pennsylvania's best preserved iron furnaces. A stop here is a highlight of any trip to the Ghost Town Trail.
