Mount Savage Iron Smelter (United States)


The furnace was built in 1848 and ran for many years until the Civil War, when it shut down. It reopened in 1870 under the name of the Lexington and Carter County Mining Company. The furnace blew out in 1874. It reopened again in 1877 as the Mount Savage Furnace Company, headed by H.W. Bates. Capacity was increased to 13.5 tons per day. The furnace closed for good in 1880.[url]http://www.oldindustry.org/KY_HTML/Ky_MtSavage.html[/url]
