This once iron furnace now turned into public park, Lock Ridge Park is located just outside of Alburtis, Pennsylvania. There are many remnants of the old Thomas Iron Company which was active from 1868 to 1921. The iron industry in the Lehigh Valley was then flourishing, and the Lock Ridge furnaces (designated No. 7 and No. 8 by Thomas Iron) were typical of the time. There are various structures that remain on the property along with a museum.
The 59 acre park reclaimed and opened in August 1976. Today it is operated as a partnership between the County of Lehigh, which owns and maintains the site, and the Lehigh County Historical Society, which provides public tours of the furnace complex.
The park offers excellent portrait photography opportunities, the grounds are well maintained and if you time it you can even get photos with a section of the property covered in blue bell flowers. Please reach out to us if you would like to schedule a session at the park.
