Deercreek Furnace Stonework
Deercreek Furnace Stonework

Description

I am not 100% sure that the pictures indicated reflect Deercreek Furnace. Based upon the map, I could not identify the furnace at the noted site. The owners of the property directed me to a site across from a sewage treatment plant about a mile east. This may have been a different furnace. Later on the trip, another individual informed me that Deercreek is still standing, but is further west, around the town of Kossuth, PA. If anyone has different information, please let me know.
