Searching for a nice place to visit in Virginia? Try Roaring Run Iron Furnace – More Virginia History!

Roaring Run Iron Furnace in Virginia. Pre-civil war.

I was looking through some photos the other day and found some pictures John and I took a couple of years ago of the Roaring Run Iron Furnace in Virginia. This iron furnace was built in 1834 and abandoned in 1854.

So peaceful, so serene and will soon be emblazoned

with beautiful gold, orange and red colors of autumn.

For more information, check out the following links! Great site for a home school trip!

Great information for a history report too. So pack your picnic basket and hop in the car this weekend to enjoy part of our history in a beautiful setting.

  1. I think you will enjoy it. Be sure to bring a picnic lunch! =-)
    There are many wonderful places to visit in this part of Virginia. You may want to visit Lexington, Va. From the Historic Virginia Military Institute, the home of Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, see his horse, Little Sorrel at the museum or have a ride through town in a horse drawn carriage. If you are interested in horses, there is also a horse center.
