carrick furnace 2

Carrick Furnace, a relic of the early iron industry in Franklin County, was built in 1828 and last fired in 1884. Some of its steam-powered equipment still stands on the site. The FCHS-K obtained the Furnace in 1934 by deed for a consideration of $1 from the executors of the estate of the former owner. Carrick Furnace was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991.

Carrick Furnace is located on the west side of Route 75 in Metal Township, a few miles north of Fort Loudon. It is not open for tours at this time.
