HANDOUT: This 1880's photographs - which shows the Glendon Iron Company's furnace number 3 and it's blowing engine house in the vicinity of Hugh Moore Park's smaller picnic pavillion - is on exhibit in the National Canal Museum into new digs at the Emrick Technology Center in Hugh Moore Park in Easton on Monday. The Glendon Iron Company (1842) operated the second successful anthracite-fueled iron making facility in America. Located two miles west of Easton along the Lehigh Canal (in what is now Hugh Moore Park), Glendon Iron had three large furnaces in operation by 1850. The National Canal Museum has moved from it's spot on Centre Square where they shared space with the Crayola Experience. The move was dictated by Crayola to give them room for expansion.
