Description: This image shows the Buckeye Furnace in the vicinity of Jackson, Ohio. The picture was taken before the reconstruction of the building. Today it is a restored charcoal furnace. The stone stack was all that remained on the land donated in the 1930s by the Frank Morrow family of nearby Wellston. It is owned by the Ohio Historical Society. The Furnace complex was reconstructed in the early 1970s as a memorial to the charcoal iron industry once centered in southeastern Ohio and northern Kentucky. View on Ohio Memory.
