Iron Center Museum documents Port Henry’s history as the largest pre-war producer of iron ore in the U.S. Originally a laboratory for testing iron ore, it’s now part of the Railroad and Mining Heritage Park. The waterfront structures were once a part of the Witherbee-Sherman Mining Company. The museum covers the iron industry from 1820 to 1971, detailing the process of mining, its impact on the lives of laborers, and transportation of the final product using Lake Champlain.
