Iron Furnaces of Botetourt

Tuesday, December 5, 2023

Did you know Botetourt County had considerable iron and lime deposits and iron furnaces were built to process ore? This production led to development and became one of the economic staples of Botetourt from the late 1700s through the Civil War, and into the early 1900s. Join Edwin "Ed" McCoy to learn what these furnaces did for the development of Botetourt and where they are today!
