An official Path Through History Site! Clove Furnace, a blast furnace, opened in 1854, producing iron for the manufacture of stoves and hardware. The furnace was shut in 1885 and now serves as headquarters for the Orange County Historical Society. The restored stack, spillway, and other buildings, provide a glimpse into a 19th-century industry in the Hudson River Valley, while the adjacent museum explains the ironmaking process and offers displays about Orange County history. Hiking trails in Harriman State Park pass mines that supplied this and other furnaces.
