The Roaring Run Furnace was the only national register site owned by the Jefferson National Forest. It is located in the New Castle Ranger District in Botetourt County. The furnace is located on Roaring run Branch, a tributary of Craig Creek, five miles from the James River. Until recently little of the historical documentation of this site had been recovered from primary sources in the various state and local archives. The information recently recovered suggests that the furnace reflects the national and statewide economics of the iron industry during the 19th century.
