Across Passage Creek are the stone reminders of the once prosperous pig iron industry. Built in the 1830s, Elizabeth Furnace was in operation for approximately 50 years. During the Civil War, the furnace supplied thousands of tons of pig iron to the Confederacy. The furnace was destroyed in 1864 when Federal troops penetrated the upper end of Fort Valley during the battle of Cedar Creek on October 19, 1864. Elizabeth Furnace was rebuilt in 1883 but had no appreciable output and was abandoned in 1888. A brief history[url]http://www.hmdb.org/marker.asp?marker=3102[/url]
