Cornwall Iron Furnace Associates will host a presentation of “The Rest of the Story,” highlighting mysteries surrounding the historical operations of the furnace from 1742 to 1883.

The presentation on Tuesday, March 12, will begin at 7 p.m. in-person at Freeman Hall, Cornwall Manor, and virtually on Zoom. It will be hosted by Michael Weber, a volunteer guide, researcher, and lecturer at Cornwall Iron Furnace, and will utilize primary sources to help resolve these mysteries.

A 1982 graduate of Penn State, Weber spent more than three decades in fields including geologist, health physicist, and manager for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the U.S. Geological Survey. He is the author of the book “Always More Production,” a history of mining operations at Cornwall.
