Follow PA Rt.268 to Parker, turn south on Jackson Avenue at the First Presebyterian Church in Parker. Go 1 mile on this road to a railroad bed. Park and walk to the left along the track for about 50 feet. Look down over the embankment, and about 50 feet down the hill along Bear Creek you will see the ruins of Bear Creek Furnace [ca.1966], including part of the back wall, a retaining wall and the inner stack. Below the furnace and toward the creek, the ground is covered with slag. The Furnace sets on or near the Armstrong - Butler County Line.
