Pennsylvania Iron Furnace Sourcebook

    Pennsylvania Iron Furnace Source Book is a Bibliographical Source for the 18th and 19th century Iron Works of Pennsylvania: The Stone Blast Furnaces, Forges, Rolling Mills & Iron Works of Pennsylvania are indexed by the Pennsylvania County they were built in and also in an every name index which includes the owners and workers of the Furnaces & Iron Works, with links to individual furnace web sites containing pictures, bibliographical sources, and location information for these iron works.

     With the increasing interest, both popular and academic, in the Industrial Heritage of Pennsylvania, there is a parallel need for research tools, such as bibliographics, which can provide research workers with essential information.  The 18th and 19th century Iron Industry in Pennsylvania is one of these areas in which much written material exists; but unfortunately, no main bibliographical source of these works has been done.  This work is an attempt to compile such a bibliography.  Although most main reference sources contain a bibliography, no one reference has broken these references down into the sources for individual Iron Works.  The Iron Furnace Source Book of Pennsylvania is such a compilation.

This web site is a work in progress, over 500 pages of data has been compiled to-date and will take some time to transfer to the web, please bear with us.
