Buckeye Furnace in Jackson County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
This area of the furnace complex was known as the stockyard. Here the raw materials were delivered, stockpiled, sorted and graded.
When Buckeye Furnace was operating, this area bustled with activity as teamsters delivered and unloaded their cargoes of limestone, iron ore, and charcoal.
