  • If you're visiting Salem, this is a stop you should make! While it takes you out of the witch trials realm, the initial building you see when you park is very similar to the "Witch House" in Salem...  more »
  • Besides its historical importance, Iron Works is a worth to visit place. Your kids will like there. And if you catch a good weather, bring some food and snacks to have a picnic with the family.  more »
  • Another excellent road trip / day trip spot from the National Park Service! This historic site is a (reproduction) iron works facility from the 17th century on the original site, researched via archaeological findings, and recreated. It’s super educational and interesting. There are plenty of signs and plaques for a self guided tour... or awesome helpful rangers to answer any questions and guide you through your visit. If you’re in the area, maybe on your way up to Salem, or down to Boston... definitely definitely check it out!
  • Nice place would never have know or thought of goin there. Friend told us to go that it was a hidden gem. So on our way to Salem MA for the Halloween festivities we stopped with the kids and explored the place. Very nice grounds. Lots of open space. And really cool old revolutionary war era artifacts that had been found on the property. Besides it being a iron works back in the 1600’s-1700’s. A lot of history is on the sight. But that’s pretty much true for all New England. Cool buildings. Water wheel, picnic tables, gift shop, park rangers that show u around and tell all the stuff you want to know. Check it out if u have a few hours to kill.
