Star Spangled Banner National Historic TrailThe Curtis Creek Iron Furnace (also calle Aetna or Etna Furnace), established c. 1759, stood on the south side of Furnace Branch Creek in Glen Burnie, where Rte. 10 now crosses. The location ensured access to local iron ore deposits, wood from surrounding forests necessary for charcoal kilns, a constant source of water power from a one-mile mill race fed by Saw Mill Creek, and water transportation for exporting iron products.
