? ? ? In 1882, these waterwheels, the last of many at Long Pond Ironworks, were constructed to harness the power of the Wanaque River, the only natural drainage from Long Pond (Greenwood Lake). The water was carried from the waterfall upriver to the tops of waterwheels via canals and aqueducts. The turning wheels, which could generate 200 horsepower, operated huge piston engines that blasted air into the furnace fire, raising the temperature high enough to smelt iron from ore.
