? ? ? The outbreak of the Civil War awakened the industrial power of the Northern States. The Cooper & Hewitt Iron Company built the "Gun Metal Furnace" on the Wanaque River in 1862 to supply iron for the manufacture of rifles and other ordnance for the Union Army. A second furnace was completed by 1863. Though later converted to burning coal, these furnaces closed in 1882.

? ? ? Abram S. Hewitt directed production. The Hewitt's summer home at Ringwood Manor was headquarters to all of Long Pond's ironmasters.
