Historic Village of Hewitt

Founded in 1766 by Peter Hasenclever, the Long Pond Ironworks was run by a succession of famous ironmasters, including Robert Erskine, Martin J. Ryerson and Abraham S. Hewitt. The Long Pond furnace, forge and supporting village contributed to the war efforts during the American Revolution, The War of 1812 and the Civil War. As at many other iron-producing sites in the Highlands, the furnace operation in the Long Pond ended in the 1880's when the iron industry's western migration was complete.

Long Pond was the colonial name for Greenwood Lake, the source of water power for the 18th- and 19th- century iron-smelting complex.

The Long Pond Ironworks Historic District is listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places.
