Early Iron Smelting


Author(s):
Abstract:
Iron works have long been ubiquitous to the state of North Carolina. They were probably built before 1730 near coastal villages and have been in operation since before the American Revolution. The manufacture of iron in North Carolina includes the ancient works in the now forgotten town of Averasboro, and operations on the upper tributaries of the Dan, Cape Fear, and Yadkin Rivers.
