    A view into the past when the lackawanna valley was booming with industry. Beautifully restored and scenic. Even used as a wedding venue this sight is unexpected in the middle of downtown Scranton.  more »

    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.
