Long Pond Ironworks Site Overview

Long Pond Ironworks was founded in 1766 and operated continually until 1882, making iron for a wide range of purposes. Today, the ruins of three furnaces and other village structures remain in a beautiful setting within Long Pond Ironworks State Park near the New York border in West Milford, NJ. Roam among the ruins of three furnaces and other unique buildings at this ironworks plantation and discover its role in the American Revolution, the War of 1812, and the American Civil War.
