Explore one of America’s most important industrial sites at this “outdoor museum” along trails that pass the remains of foundry buildings and interpretive features that tell the story of the site’s contribution to the Industrial Revolution and the Civil War.

Operating from 1818 to about 1911, the West Point Foundry was a major American ironworking and machine shop site in Cold Spring, most famous for its production of Parrott rifle artillery and other munitions during the Civil War. Also manufactured at this site were some of America’s first steam engines, locomotives, pipes for New York City’s water system and cannons that helped win the Civil War.

The land has experienced remarkable ecological renewal and its nearly 90 acres with its bubbling brook make it a great place to explore the valley’s past and enjoy its wildlife.

Free and open year-round, dawn to dusk.
