Carrick Furnace

The Carrick Furnace has been transferred to the local Path Valley Historical Society in February 2020. Cleanup efforts were immediately commenced, a driveway and parking lot added, and this relic furnace is in much better condition. Visitors to the site should use caution and stay away from the limestone stack and practice safe walking. Work is ongoing and Friends of The Carrick Furnace has been established on Facebook. Donations and volunteers are welcome. You may contact the Path Valley Historical society at

Please feel free to contaact the Society with questions, support, volunteering.
