Reading Furnace Book
The Friends of Hopewell Furnace is offering a limited number of books entitled “Reading Furnace 1736” by Estelle Cremers, published in 1986, commemorating the 250 anniversary of the Reading Furnace.
Estelle Cremers’s style of writing is quite engaging, as she masterfully examines the privileged lives of the Iron masters. Her extensive research reveals the details of the furnace’s role during the American Revolution, including making the first American made Iron cannon. During Washington’s campaign in Pennsylvania in 1777, Washington showed how much he valued the Reading Furnace by visiting it and staying for two nights at the Reading Furnace Mansion, while his troops rested and recuperated at the neighboring homes.
