Ample free parking for this entrance-fee open-air museum, recreated/restored town around the historic Nassawango Iron Furnace.

Nothing fancy, but educational, family friendly, and economical. In the Fall it is the site of the Chesapeake Celtic Festival. It...More

The furnace and preserved buildings are curated by The Nature Conservancy. There are lovely walks under the loblolly pines and the signs and descriptive text help it come alive. This is a good place to visit on a hot day, it is shady and lovely.

Really enjoyed our visit here. Beautiful setting in the woods. About 10 restored building representing a thriving town in the mid 1800s. Worth a couple of hours if you are in the area.
