Furnace Town Living Heritage Museum

Asks YOU to Contact Your Commissioner

A non-profit grant application has been submitted to the Worcester County Commissioners seeking funding for general operation and programming expenses of the Furnace Town Foundation.

A budget hearing with the Worcester County Commissioners is currently scheduled for Tuesday, May 7 at 7:00 p.m. This public forum will be held at Stephen Decatur High School, and members of the community will be allowed to speak. Please contact Jessica Evans, Executive Director at director@furnacetown.org if you would like to appear on the Foundation’s behalf.

We ask that community members write or e-mail their elected Commissioner, advocating for the continued support of Furnace Town.

Why it matters

The Nassawango Iron Furnace is registered with the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) and is listed in the National Park Service Heritage Documentation Program - Historic American Engineering Record (HAER).

Multiple structures on the grounds of Furnace Town Living Heritage Village are documented in Maryland Inventory of Historic Properties (MIHP).

Furnace Town Living Heritage Village receives thousands of guests each year, including thousands of students and a wide variety of youth organizations from Worcester, Wicomico and Somerset counties. Public and community programming is offered on a regular schedule, and curriculum aligned education experiences are available.

The requested funds will be utilized to support our mission, and provide funding.

Thank you for your support!
