4 Robesonia area women, Barbara Breininger, Holly Baim Swanson, Donna Kuhn and Wanda Gartner were able to have the Robesonia Furnace Triangle listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991. In 1989, they started the Friends of the Robesonia Furnace and organized the first Robesonia Furnace Festival.
In 2021, The Friends of the Robesonia Furnace celebrate the 30 year anniversary of the Robesonia Furnace Districts induction into the National Register of Historic Places. This effort was spearheaded in 1989 by a small group of local women who recognized the importance of the region. In 1991, the United States Department of the Interior, National Park Service recognized the significant contributing nature of the Robesonia Furnace and entered the Furnace campus into the National Registry.
Many local families have had ancestors that worked, or lived in the Furnace District. Through the donations of items and sharing of memories, the furnace and its significance to the area lives on. Please consider donating photos, stories, your time, and even consider our non-profit in your estate planning. We need all the help you can graciously afford.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
