In the 1600’s, on the banks of the Saugus River, something extraordinary happened — the birth of the American Iron and Steel Industry! Explore the place where European iron makers brought their special skills to a young Massachusetts colony. Saugus Iron Works is a twelve-acre National Historic Site that includes working waterwheels, forges, mills, a historic 17th century home, and a lush river basin. Learn about this National Historic Site with Supervisory Park Ranger Andrew Donovan.
