Significance: The Tredegar Iron Works were an important component of the Antebellum South's industrial economy and played a major role in supplying iron and ordnance to the Confederacy during the Civil War. After the War, the Works continued production until 1952 when they were gutted by fire. Though devoid of most machinery, the Works still retain a fair degree of structural integrity.
