  • Very interesting historic structure. When we visited we where the only people there.
  • 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.
  • Love history
  • Coming from out of state, this provided an informative, cheap (free) attraction to visit.
  • Nice park, really cool to see.
