The ironworks at Tannehill produced many iron implements used by the Confederate army during the Civil War. The ironworks, which were restored to working condition in 1976, are today the centerpiece of Tannehill Ironworks Historical State Park. The Tannehill Historical Trail travels around the buildings of the ironworks and its furnace. Heading into the woods, the trail encounters the rolling blue-green waters of Roupes Creek and the ruins of the homes of slaves who worked at the ironworks. Trail Surface: Packed clay and dirt.
