After 5 years of meticulous renovations, Elizabeth Furnace, a rare American landmark, is now open for private events for the first time in 250 years.
When asked how he intends to use the restored property in the future, Craig mentioned weddings, historical lectures, concerts, art exhibitions, and charitable purposes. He pointed out that people who rent the space aren’t just renting a building. They’re renting a campus and will have the place entirely to themselves. “It’s a hidden treasure,” Craig noted. “We brought in all the modern facilities but didn’t change the historic buildings to accommodate that.” He’s also hoping that they’ll have a good shot at local, regional, and national design and construction awards, especially with the uniqueness of the stable.
We don’t view ourselves as owners, but rather stewards of the property. It’s something that was impressed on us from an early age. We recognize its historical importance and what a crown jewel of architecture it is. And now we are excited to share it with others. - Craig Coleman, owner of Elizabeth Furnace
