Inscription.  The shipment of pig iron was a continual problem at Buckeye Furnace. When Buckeye Furnace was constructed, the owners planned to ship the iron on small boats down the Little Raccoon Creek. After unpredictable water levels in the stream made this method of shipping impractical, the furnace owners turned to wagons. Teamsters transported the iron to the railroad at Berlin Cross Roads, three miles away.
