Wow (its free, with donations), the short 15 minute movie details life at Hopewell during the 1700s, 1800s, and 1900s. It brings Hopewell furnace alive. then you walk around and it feels like you are back in the time period. they have done a wonderful job preserving and allowing visitors a hands on feel to tools and iron casting of that time periond.
In addition, we visited St. Petes Village only a 10 minute drive away. they have big boulders that our teenage kids and myself like to climb on. then get some ice cream and play some old pinball games 2 for 1 for 25 cents....for us old pinball wizards, tilt still works, but they have about 20 pinball machines. worth the visit!!
makes for a super fun afternoon. pack a picnic lunch and enjoy.
