Historic Tredegar Iron Works

Tredegar Iron Works dates from the 1830s; at the onset of the Civil War, it was the largest iron works in the South and became a major supplier of the Confederate war effort. It supplied materials for the US in both World War I and World War II, but a fire destroyed the iron works in the 1950s. Ethyl Corporation acquired the site and undertook restoration; Tredgar Iron Works was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971 and named a National Historic Landmark in 1977. The buildings now house the (private) American Civil War Center and the National Park Service's main visitor center for the multi-site Richmond National Battlefield Park.
