  • Just outside the downtown area, this site is well worth taking a few minutes to see. This is a giant furnace used to make iron a long time ago and it's interesting to see the fortress like structure. ...  more »

  • Very interesting historic structure. When we visited we where the only people there.
  • Nice park, really cool to see.
  • A wonderful historic site to visit in Scranton, but perhaps the best things about the Iron Furnaces are the events they host throughout the year. Arts on Fire, Bonfire at the Furnaces, and the South Side Farmers Market are just a few of the gems that can be found at the Furnaces. It's a beautiful spot to get views of Roaring Brook, and the history of the place is something worth reflecting on.
  • Coming from out of state, this provided an informative, cheap (free) attraction to visit.
  • Local government seems dedicated to ruining this through development, but I love it for the sleepy oft-overlooked creekside park it is. It hosts occasional events throughout the year and a small Saturday farmers market in the summer.
