Description
Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site in southeastern Berks County, near Elverson, Pennsylvania, is an example of an American 19th century rural "iron plantation". The buildings include a blast furnace, the ironmaster's house and auxiliary structures including a blacksmith's shop, a company store and several worker's houses. The animals sheltered in the barn were crucial to Hopewell’s operation. The lower barn contained stalls for 36 horses. Sheep, poultry, hogs, and cattle were also raised to help feed the Hopewell community. Above the stalls were three hay mows which held enough hay to feed the animals for a year. Feed grain was stored in bins at opposite ends of the barn Hopewell Furnace was founded in 1771 by ironmaster Mark Bird. -- http://www.nps.gov/hofu/forteachers/upload/sgtour.pdf
