Clintonville Forge Project

Virtual Tour of Clintonville Forge


Clintonville Forge Site Map - Location of Waterwheel Pit

Field Notes:

Found adjacent to a triphammer foundation at the rear central portion of the forge building.

Remains of heavy wooden timbers revealed a 4 1/2 ft. wide pit with 5 inch wide planks for flooring.

The waterwheel drove a heavy triphammer that shaped the iron produced in the bloomery forges.
