Summer Ranger Talks

Hopewell Furnace NHS preserves the late 18th and early 19th century setting of an iron-making community, including the charcoal-fueled furnace, and its natural and cultural resources. This community illustrates the essential role of industrialization in the growth of the early United States.

Join a National Park Ranger to explore:
  • The role of Hopewell Furnace in America's industrial infancy.
  • Nearly 200 years of progress and innovation at Hopewell Furnace.
  • The land, resources, and interconnected community that seized opportunity and supported early American industrialization at Hopewell Furnace.

Programs will start at 11:00 AM at the Visitor Center and 2:00 PM at the Village Store, weekdays June 17 through September 1 as staffing permits. All programs are free and for all ages. Program length and distances may vary. Some programs may cover moderate distances (less than 1 mile) and may require attendees to climb and descend steep inclines.
