Cornwall Furnace Park

Cornwall Furnace Park is a historic Civil War era cold blast furnace that is listed on the National Register of Historic places.  Erected in 1862, the furnace supplied iron ore for foundries in Rome, Georgia, where armaments were forged for Confederate States of America.  Visitors can see and touch the 50-foot tall stack in which the iron was melted. Situated on the shore of Weiss Lake there are picnic tables and pavilions and a memorial to the Veterans from all Wars.
