West Point Foundry Preserve Information

The West Point Foundry was created after the War of 1812, and operated for nearly a century afterward. Situated just outside of the town of Cold Spring, New York, the preserve protects the ruins from the foundry, with educational displays and kiosks explaining the uses of each structure, as well as feats of engineering for the time. Making use of a series of dams along Foundry Brook, the ironworks had a steady flow of water for its manufacturing processes.
