Unfortunately, for some reasons, I have blogged, (speculated) that the Chicago Iron and Bridge Company, still in business today, had been part of the West Point Foundry Historic District, in Cold Spring, NY. I was mistaken and those references have been removed, as historically the Cornell ownership was the "post-classic" period for the foundry, as described in the report:
"The West Point Foundry Site, Cold Spring, Putnam County, New York." Unpublished study, 1979. West Point Foundry Archives, Putnam History Museum, Cold Spring, NY. Edward S. Rutsch, JoAnn Cotz, and Brian H. Morell.
Since their study there have been a number of books in print and public archaeology about the foundry and iron production in New York. A new exhibit opens today at the Putnam History Museum.
