The Nassawango Iron Furnace was built in 1830 by the Maryland Iron Company to produce iron from bog ore deposits in its vicinity. It is notable for its innovative use of a "hot blast" technique for refining the iron, which had only been developed in England around 1828, and which may have been added to the Nassawango Furnace in 1837. Due to the variable nature of the bog ore deposits, the furnace stopped operations in 1849.[url]http://www.marylandhistoricaltrust.net/nr/NRDetail.aspx?HDID=343&COUNTY=Worcester&FROM=NRCountyList.aspx?COUNTY=Worcester[/url]
