The Incredible Hike In New Jersey That Leads To A Fascinating Abandoned Furnace
New Jersey is the kind of place where things are always changing, which means that things don’t usually stay abandoned for too long. It’s usually not long before one of our enterprising developers turns it into something new and exciting. But when wandering off the beaten path, it’s still possible to find places that feel lost in time. That’s the case for Weymouth Furnace, an abandoned furnace in New Jersey that was once part of the state’s rich industrial history. Today, it’s part of the Atlantic County Parks system, located in the rural area of Mays Landing in the southern part of the state. A quick, simple hike takes you to the ruins, which are an essential visit for those looking to explore the state’s history – and also feel more than a little eerie at times.
Editor’s Note: This is not a well-maintained trail. Pay attention to the area as you make your way to the abandoned furnace.
