Slag Piles


This stream erodes through slag piles from the Lawrence Furnace. The bridge in the foreground is the third bridge on the Hells Hollow Trail. The stream is a tributary to Hell Run.

The Lawrence Furnace, just upstream on the tributary from the slag piles, operated from 1865 to 1873. It was reported to be in ruins by 1877. The furnace site is on private property (see map).
