“Community” Spirits of the Furnace 2020: Virtual Edition!

For 20 years we have welcomed you to walk through the historic Catoctin Iron Furnace
and Village with us on an October evening. The guided night tour included stops in
historic structures and along the landscape to meet iron workers, furnace owners, and worshipers. The pandemic of 2020 makes it impossible to meet in person, but we want to hear from you! 

Perhaps you remember a story about a character from bygone days at the furnace.
Please call and tell us your family stories about village ancestors and historical events.

Help us make this “community” spirits of the furnace a success and ensure that the
village “spirits” are never forgotten. You story will become a valuable part of the Catoctin
Furnace Historical Society, Inc. audio archive. 

Please call us anytime and share your stories with us. Our phone is always on (240)
288-7396 or you can email us at info@catoctinfurnace.org.

Please note that we have set November 14, 2020 as a new, tentative date for this event. In all likelihood this date will need to be changed, but in order to keep the event’s Eventbrite listing and email active it was necessary to assign a new date.
