A Note On Accessibility:

  • The structures are close together with unpaved trails and grass surfaces surrounding the majority of the buildings. The Museum of the Ironworker is ADA accessible and we are working on the installation of a ramp to the Collier’s Log House, however at this time it does require one step up for entry. The African American Cemetery Interpretive Trail is ADA compliant; however, certain access points are not. If you have questions or concerns please call 240-288-7396 or email info@catoctinfurnace.org to discuss prior to your booking.
