In the mid-1700s, German and Irish settlers migrated down through the Great Valley from Pennsylvania to Virginia. In this area between Virginia's Blue Ridge and the Alleghenies, they found abundant wood, limestone, water power and iron ore: the ingredients for an iron and steel industry. One of the centers for this work was Columbia Furnace,which is pictured here. This is tile 2 of the Columbia Furnace series. On the right, it will connect directly with tile 3, and on the left with tiles 1 or 5. The six tiles of the series can be mixed to form a frieze up to sixteen feet long, without repetition.
