The foundations of a nation!

Saugus Ironworks. It was places like this that laid the foundation for the American steel industry. We Scip’ed here, and took the tour of the forge, and saw the blacksmith shop and watched actual nails being made. It was realy cool to hear that private citizens wanted preserve the historic home that’s on site. Investors from the Steel Industry weren’t interested in doing so until they saw the remains of a slag pit. They showed respect for the people who laid the foundation, for their own success. Wow!
