My latest micro adventure that I’m calling – Taking Random Roads Ends in a Hike – And I Find This! Provided Iron for Confederate Ordinance? Ep-32 – I find a little of everything! Barns, beautiful countryside, old homes, new homes some abandoned, vacant, lived in – you can decide.
After taking a bunch of random roads I end up at Tannehill State Park for an early morning hike. While hiking I come across the massive structure known as the Tannehill Furnace, which helped provide iron for Confederate Ordinance.
Here’s what wikipedia has to say: The Tannehill Ironworks is the central feature of Tannehill Ironworks Historical State Park near the unincorporated town of McCalla in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places as Tannehill Furnace, it was a major supplier of iron for Confederate ordnance.
Tannehill State Park has many rustic period cabins to rent as well the state park website has this to say: The park has 7 rental cabins. 6 are rustic log cabins from the 1800s that have been moved into the park and restored. The Nelson House is a trailer that has been converted to a cabin. All the cabins have a furnished kitchen, living room with a fireplace, bathroom, heat and air-conditioning.* One rack of firewood is furnished per stay Labor Day until Memorial Day. Additional firewood may be purchased at the Country Store. There are no TVs, radios or telephones in the cabins. Cabins are intended for overnight use only. Rental for parties or entertainment purposes is prohibited.
