Illinois Iron Furnace in Shawnee National Forest

(Satellite (41 photos))

Decades ago, I learned there were relics of old iron furnaces in New Jersey. About a decade ago I learned there were some in southeast Ohio. This past year I learned there we some in Kentucky. But today is the first I knew there was one in Illinois. This goes on the "todo" list to get some photos of the interpretive signs.
