    Saugus Ironworks

    by grandmaR Updated Jun 2, 2005

    Saugus Ironworks is a National Historic Site administered by the National Park Service. It was the first integrated ironworks in North America, 1646-1668. It includes the reconstructed blast furnace, forge, rolling mill, and a restored seventeenth century house. There is a working water wheel. This is where America's iron and steel industry started.

    I took my older girls here in the summer of 1970.
