McIntyre Blast Furnace
OSI purchased the tract from National Lead in 2003 and the furnace, one of the last remaining in the region, was stabilized in 2007 and preliminary restoration work was performed on McNaughton. The new plan will include walking trails, labels and storytelling panels describing the area’s rich and varied history.
Completed in 1854, it was an early charcoal-burning furnace, unique in design, efficient in its day and obviously fabulously constructed. Its one of Newcomb's unique structures located in Adirondac, an abandoned early mining village even before National Lead.
