This marker to be installed this summer 2019

The Caroline Furnace in Miller Township is the last standing cold-blast iron smelting furnace in Perry County.

It was SAVED! On July 22, 2011. The Perry Historians acquired the Caroline Furnace Property by purchasing it at Sheriff Sale.

Almost seven years to the day of purchase, restoration work was began. Phase one included the cleaning of plant life and debris from the gaps in the stones and filling with mortar and grout.

A solid concrete cap was installed to prevent weather from entering and causing further detoriation.
