The Irontonian, 1948 -- In an article about the Ohio Iron and Coal Company: "On April 23, these stockholders met, organized and dated their organization papers using the new name, Ironton… On May 3 the new company purchased the LaGrange furnace lands at the mouth of Storms Creek on the Ohio river… This land purchase included all the land on the river bank from Storms Creek as far up the river, a distance we now know as "South" to Jefferson street… On June 20, the first public land sale for the new city of Ironton was held."
LaGrange Furnace Cemetery
To get to this cemetery from Ironton, travel north on St. Rt. 93 and take the first left (Porter Gap Road). The entrance to the cemetery is 1.6 miles out that road, just past the church. If you go past the cemetery entrance, the furnace is 0.3 miles on your left.
