​Step into life in a mid-1800’s iron-making village. Take a guided tour with a knowledgeable guide appearing in period dress. The Eagle Iron Works and its nearby workers’ village are a testament to the vision and determination of Irish immigrant Roland Curtin. In an era when the average lifespan of regional iron-making companies was 15 years, Eagle Iron Works was in operation for 112 years.  It was the last surviving charcoal-fueled iron furnace in Pennsylvania. Our guided tour includes:

  • ​Federal-style Curtin Family Mansion (built 1830-1831) with period furnishings
  • blast furnace and iron-making complex
  • workers’ village
  • personal carriage of Pennsylvania’s Civil War Governor, Andrew Gregg Curtin

You’ll be entertained as well as educated; even life-long Pennsylvanians will learn something new about the geology, biology and geography of the center of our state. Don't Miss This Amazing Tour! Included Evening Meal on the return trip!
