When people think of the Shenandoah Valley, they are more apt to think of apples than of iron. However, in the early 1800s, the iron and steel output of the valley was a rival to anything coming out of Pennsylvania. During the Civil War, much of the iron for the cannon and rifles produced in Richmond came from Shenandoah ironworks, like Columbia Furnace. Now peace reigns, and the furnaces are gone. What remains are the valley, the river, and the immortal mountains. This is tile 4 of the Columbia Furnace series, and it can be connected to tiles 1 or 5 on the right, and to tile 3 on the left. The six tiles of the series can be mixed to form a frieze up to sixteen feet in length, without repetition.
