End view of Cooling Shed and Charcoal House

Charcoal, sometimes still smoldering from its recent manufacture, was first placed under the "Cooling Shed" and allowed to lower in temperature before being shoveled into the "Charcoal House". This helped guard against accidental fire that could consume all of Hopewell Furnace's fuel.
