This Fascinating North Carolina Furnace Has Been Abandoned And Reclaimed By Nature For Decades Now

The historic Endor Iron Furnace, a large smelting furnace near Cumnock, formerly known as Egypt, is situated along the Deep River. It operated from 1862–1865 and sometimes throughout the end of the 19th century. The state-owned property is without public access and is viewable by paddling down the picturesque and forested river. See why folks are fascinated by this abandoned and reclaimed North Carolina structure.

See these abandoned and reclaimed ruins at Deep River Park. And for a delicious lunch, drive the approximately 16 miles to Ron’s Barn in Sanford for some of the best southern fried chicken in North Carolina.
