Since 2000, The Iron Heritage Festival has become one of the largest historic festivals in Central PA. On Oct 8, 1845, the first T-rail in America was rolled out at the Montour Iron Works, the largest iron manufacturing plant in the United States. The T-rail made it possible for Pennsylvania and America to become the leader in the industrial revolution. This festival is a celebration of America's ingenuity and foresight and is of interest for all of our Nation's citizens! Lateran Light Cemetery Tours, Parade on Thursday Entertainment at Canal Park, bus tours of Iron, Window Displays, Quoits Tournament, Artisan Encampment, food, demonstrations and lots of fun on Mill Street! Plus, garden and church tours and a trip to Pioneer Tunnel Coal Mine.
