  • Very interesting historical community. Excellent self guided walking tour. We stayed in the nearby state park and walked the many trails adjoining Hopewell Firnace. It's easy to include a tour of the community while hiking the nearby trails.
  • An historic gem. Beautiful grounds, wonderful lessons of history, and a real experience of smelting ore. We watched the demonstration and got a real appreciation for the skills involved in this technique. A must-see if you are in the area. I will return to explore the grounds more and stroll the trails.
  • I love this place . The storyteller lron master was awesome .Cant wait to go back.
  • We've explored here in the past. Stopped in after a hike in French Creek to use the restroom. Discovered that they have apple trees and allow you to pick.
  • Hopewell Furnace is an outstanding example of an iron making village with great trails that connect to adjacent French Creek State Park. This is a truly beautiful area of iconic eastern Pennsylvania landscapes.
