Museums by Candlelight at Catoctin Furnace!


The Catoctin Furnace Historical Society, Inc. welcomes visitors to the ca. 1810 Collier's Log House in the Village of Catoctin Furnace.  The double log house, restored in the 1970’s, presents historical information about the early industry, lifeways and foodways of Catoctin Furnace and northern Frederick County in an early nineteenth century atmosphere.  

 Baked goods from traditional village recipes and traditional village crafts will be featured.  Design and purchase the perfect holiday wreath with fresh greenery, holly, pine cones, ribbon and bows and all sorts of adornments.  Volunteers will make the wreath while you wait. 


You can also join us for children’s activities: make a metal punched ornament, handkerchief doll,  or try your hand at 18th Century domestic skills of wash board clothes cleaning & cooking. FREE!
