Lock Ridge Park and Furnace Museum

Lock Ridge Park was opened in August 1976. The park includes the old Lock Ridge Iron Works complex and surrounding land. Swabia Creek offers limited fishing. There is a picnic pavilion with fireplace and rest rooms. A path system is suitable for walking or bike riding. There is a little league baseball field.  What looks like a medieval stone castle is actually a huge coal-burning iron furnace built in 1868. Here, iron was produced that helped transform America from a nation of farms into an industrial giant.
