Iron Heritage Festival

Home to the first T-rail in America, Danville's rich history in the iron industry is celebrated each year as the community gathers for the Iron Heritage Festival in late July. Beginning in 1829, Danville's first iron foundry was established to manufacturer wagon boxes, plowshares, andirons, sadiron and griddles. In 1839-1840 Iron Ore started to be mined locally and in 1840 the first anthracite furnace to efficiently produce iron was opened in Danville. On Oct 8, 1845, the first T-rail in America was rolled out at the Montour Iron Works, the largest iron manufacturing plant in the United States. The T-rail made it possible for Pennsylvania and America to become the leader in the industrial revolution. This festival is a celebration of America's ingenuity and foresight and is of interest for all of our Nation's citizens!
