Inscription. Along the streams of this region are ruins of many charcoal iron furnaces and forges built between 1790 and 1850 that produced some of the highest quality iron in the nation. The reign of Juniata Iron ended with the rise of coal and coke iron-making. Nearby Springfield Furnace, in operation from 1820-84, produced this type of iron, as did 11 others in Morrison Cove. Royer Mansion, built here in 1815, was ironmaster Samuel Royer’s home.
