I Saw The Marker

This furnace is also known locally as the Longdale Furnace. Surrounded by overgrown grass, the marker is in very good shape with the exception of a few letters which have faded from their original black. Unfortunately, the furnace stacks and the additional buildings are in private property and not accessible. Only the stacks are visible since they are the tallest structure.
