The Friends of Cornwall Iron Furnace on Saturday will unveil interpretive signs to be placed at strategic locations along the Lebanon Valley Rail Trail.

The free public event will begin at 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 20, at the furnace. Participants will include board members of Lebanon Valley Rails-to-Trails.

A three-sided sign will be installed at the trail entrance parking area in Cornwall center. The sign will include a map highlighting key locations in Cornwall, a history of Cornwall, and information on the seven villages of the Cornwall area.

The event will provide a demonstration of the planned computer-based QR code and its geo-coded links to additional information and images about Cornwall’s history.

Light refreshments will be provided. The furnace will also be open for scheduled tours at regular ticket prices.

For more information, contact James Polczynski, president of the Friends group, at or by calling the furnace at 717-272-9711.
