The cornerstone of the New World's industrial success was the manufacture of raw iron, called pig iron. The final wrought iron products where worked by the local smithy or in rolling and slitting mills. The town of Catoctin, Maryland, grew up around an
iron furnace. The first one built in 1773. The 1858 vintage furnace, pictured here, is a second generation model, dubbed Isabella.
