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
