Janney Furnace Park, Ohatchee

4.5
#122 of 183 in Parks in Alabama
Janney Furnace Park is a park surrounding a fifty-foot tall stone furnace in Ohatchee, Alabama. The furnace was built in 1863 by Alfred Janney to produce pig iron due to the prevalence of iron ore in what is now the park. A July 1864 Union raid destroyed all but the stone chimney, which still remains. The furnace is now surrounded by the Calhoun County Confederate Memorial, built by Sons of Confederate Veterans in June 2003; and the 2009 Confederate and Native American Museum, which includes Civil War and Native American artifacts dating back to the Iron Age. The Confederate Memorial is the world's largest black granite confederate memorial. The furnace was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.

  • This is a nice place for a peaceful walk. It does have a museum that has some interesting Confederate items. Nice barn for a wedding.  more »
  • What great view of history. To look at the stones placed tightly together and still standing today. The stones were cut to fit with a hammer and chisel and fit exactly in place. This is amazing  more »

  • This is a great little park. We were there on New Years Day so it was closed but we still enjoyed the walking trail and the pups swam in the beautiful pond. Very peaceful place to hang out on a warm winter afternoon. We will definitely go back again when it is open.
  • A beautiful place to take pictures. Great events happen here.
