Inscription.  
North about one mi. on Furnace Creek was the Bright Hope Iron Works, built about 1830. Mining and smelting of iron ore and manufacturing of cast and wrought iron products were joined by a paper mill, pottery works, and several other establishments in an early industrial complex. The industries are believed to have failed as a result of the panic of 1837, but their operations are still recalled in the place names of early Furnace Creek and Ore Bank.
