Please help us protect and preserve the historic village of Catoctin Furnace! 

The Catoctin Furnace Historical Society, Inc. is working hard to protect, preserve and interpret the rich history of the village and its workers for this and future generations to enjoy.  Every donation will help us realize our goals such as the establishment of the Museum of the Ironworker.  This museum will tell the unique story of the slaves, freed blacks and Europeans who worked at the furnace and lived in the village.  Please give generously and visit us soon!  Please click on the button on this page (the one that says “Donate”) and enter an amount.
