General Management Plan
The first step is to identify the resource management, facility development, interpretation and visitor experience issues that the public feels are important to discuss during this planning effort. Join us in a series of open houses and meetings at the park to discuss your thoughts and concerns, or send them electronically or by mail.

"Slag" was the waste material created during Hopewell Furnace's iron smelting process. It consisted of residual minerals in the iron ore that remained after the iron had been removed. Often it appears glassy and multicolored, a combination of minerals such as copper, nickle and manganese.
