Enjoy a relaxing visit into 19th century village life. Located in the heart of the Pocomoke Forest, Furnace Town is home to Maryland's only bog ore iron furnace.  The furnace is situated 5 miles north of Snow Hill on the banks of Nassawango Creek. Furnace Town and its Nassawango Iron Furnace (recognized by The American Society of Mechanical Engineers as a National Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark) comprise an educational site of local archaeological and historical interest. The furnace and buildings are being restored, preserved and interpreted by Furnace Town Foundation, Inc.

A Delmarva Daytrip

We took a trip to the Snow Hill area and enjoyed this wonderful museum and the curator was knowledgable and very willing to answer our questions. Great place to eat a packed lunch.
