(2013) Enlarge History
 
This history accompanies the model of the Tredegar Iron Works

 

(2013) Enlarge Model Legend
 
This key/legend is located adjacent to the model of Tredegar Iron Works. Since the factory is in ruins and changes have occurred over time the legend is essential in understanding the locations of buildings. It also should be noted the factory complex made items out of bronze, as well as iron, and other materials. This industrial complex was vital to the armament of the Confederate war effort

 

(2013) Enlarge Model
 
There are three models of the Tredegar Iron Works. This model depicts the works during the War Between The States. The other two models cover the periods prior and preceding the War Between The States. All three models are located near the entrance to the NPS Museum at Tredegar in Richmond
