Long Description:
The Lincoln Furnace was basically built in a seam within the side outcropping of a stone wall hillside. Nearby Raccoon Creek may have supplied power for the bellows. There is no evidence of other structures other than the furnace itself.

The furnace is in fair condition considering the nature of its construction. The site is little more than a crack in the hillside - it is unknown how big the stack was, or if they merely loaded from the top of the hillside.

Start of Operation:c1855; Blowout:1885.
