The stories of two of Pennsylvania’s oldest state parks will be shared with an audience as part of a special discussion at the Waynesboro Industrial Museum later this month.
Wesley Foltz, the seasonal environmental interpretive technician at Caledonia State Park, is scheduled to speak at the museum beginning at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the iron-making process as well as the industrial history and natural history of Caledonia and Mont Alto State Park.
Foltz’s presentation, “How Furnaces Shaped Our Parks,” coincides with the museum’s 2013 exhibit, “Out of the Ashes: From Iron Works to Education, Recreation & Restoration,” an extension of last year’s focus on the important role iron furnaces played in shaping the history of Franklin County, as well as other parts of America.
The museum is at 235 Philadelphia Ave. It can be reached at 717-762-4460.
