Valley Furnace - Barbour Co

I'm finally finding time to finish posting photos from last week. Work keeps getting in the way of my riding and posting .

Located on Rt 38 about 3 miles west of the Tucker Co / Barbour Co line. Rt 38 is a great ride from Philippi over to St George (just north of Parsons). It's a great alternative to the over-used Philippi-Belington-Elkins route to Harmon and Seneca Rocks coming eastbound from Clarksburg. (Once you're in Parsons, try Rt 72 over to Canaan if you're not in a hurry!)

For a detailed story of the operation of this furnace and others like it, click the following link:

The ol' furnace.




I couldn't resist throwing this one in - the view across the highway from the furnace. Nice!
