On This Date in History….February 27th

Hanging Rock Furnace Dismantled

“One of the land marks of this section of the country, especially the Hanging Rock neighborhood is being slowly dismantled and soon will be but a memory.  The old Hanging Rock blast furnace, operated until November, 1923 continuously from the time of its construction in 1883 by Means, Kyle and Company, has outlived its usefulness and is being junked.  Salvage work to date has removed all possibility of the furnace ever being placed in operation again, it has been announced by Wm. Jefferys, president of the Hanging Rock Iron company owners.”
