Oak Ridge Furnace

Oak Ridge Furnace     Oak Ridge Furnace had a 15 ton furnace with a 44 foot stack and was built by H. Allison in 1856. John Thompson was believed to have started the foundation, and General O. M. Mitchell was part owner. The furnace is relatively good condition possibly because it only operated for one year.
     Today the furnace is located on private property. To view the furnace, take route 141 to Aid, Ohio. Turn left onto County Road 8 north of Aid. Follow County Road 8 until it dead ends onto County Road 5. Take the left hand fork. The furnace is on your right a few miles down the road.
