Bond Bill Success!
The Catoctin Furnace Historical Society has received a bond bill grant from the Maryland General Assembly! The grant, in the amount of $100,000, will be used for renovations to the Forgeman’s House. This would not have been possible without tireless support from Senator David R. Brinkley. The Catoctin Furnace Society also acknowledges help from Silver Oak Academy in this endeavor. To everyone who helped the CFHS along the way to this important moment, THANK YOU!
