  • Such a gorgeous local treasure. Some of my favorite local events Arts on Fire and Bonfire at the Iron Furnaces are held there.
  • Great bit of history tucked into the heart of Scranton. Great how much is still preserved and the signs describing the history of the city and site, and how integral the furnaces are to Scranton's founding, is so cool. Small parking lot but a great scenic site.
  • Good: Free, landscape very well taken care of, scenic, Great historical information Bad: Can't access inside of furnaces. Locked and gated. No river access. Fenced off. Bums passed out on the top deck. 1 hour parking
  • awesome place small but pretty cool to see
  • This is such a beautiful event space with an essence of Scranton's golden years.
