Lock Ridge Furnace Museum

Details

Located amidst a 59-acre park, Lock Ridge Furnace, built in 1868 by the Lock Ridge Iron Company, helped bring America to the forefront as an industrial giant. The site served as the iron furnace in Lehigh Valley from 1868 to 1921, when the technology they used became outdated.

The Lehigh County Historical Society operates tours at the Museum, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is open to the public with guided tours of the exterior, from May - September; Saturdays and Sundays from 1 - 4 p.m. Admission is free.

Hint: Pack a picnic lunch, and enjoy the park surrounding the Museum for hiking, walking, softball, biking, and limited fishing.

You may want to visit in early spring when the bluebells are in bloom. This flower is strewn throughout the grassy fields and is the ideal spot to capture the perfect photograph, as are the ruined buildings on the site.
