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.
Kathy, what a beautiful spot. i love history and will definitely add this to my list of places I one day plan to visit.
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.
One of these days, I hope to see your B&B!
