by Hopewell Furnace

Oct 27, 2021

In the spirit of the harvest season, Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site will be offering an afternoon of fall related children’s crafts on Saturday, October 30th. All crafts will connect with Hopewell’s gardens and forest and take place in front of the park’s visitor center.

Children’s crafts will begin at 11:00 a.m. and continue until 4:00 p.m. At 4:00 p.m. activities will end; however, visitors are welcome to explore the site until the park closes at 5:00 p.m. Admission and parking are free.

Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site preserves the late 18th and early 19th century setting of an iron-making community, including the charcoal-fueled furnace, and its natural and cultural resources. This community illustrates the essential role of industrialization in the growth of the early United States.

The park’s facilities are currently open daily Wednesday through Sunday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. It is closed Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day. Hopewell Furnace is located at 2 Mark Bird Lane, Elverson, PA 19520 about five miles south of Birdsboro, PA, off Route 345. For more information, call 610-582-8773 or visit the park’s web site at
