Irondale's History

Preserving the past is best done by sharing the past, not leaving it in the hands of a few.

Irondale, may be considered a ghost town by some today, but was once the site of a large iron-mining operation and the focus of various roads and railroads.  The whole story of this community needs to be recorded - in print, pictures, something - before the information is lost.

Anyone with a tale to tell is asked to email us at  Photographs of any and all sorts are most welcome. They will be scanned and safely returned within days.

The Bark Lake Cultural Developments is a volunteer run not-for-profit charitable organization that is responsible for the purchase, restoration, maintenance & programming of Irondale's heritage designated church building as well as researching & sharing of Irondale's interesting history.​

All donations are most appreciated.  Please visit the Donate page today.
