This is a preserved community founded in the mid-1800's by Jackson Iron Company manager Fayette Brown. Iron was smelted in Fayette until 1891, when the town was abandoned due to a decrease in the charcoal iron market. Numerous historical buildings are present including the furnace complex. Interpreters are available on-site. Museum buildings open daily 9-dusk mid-June through Labor Day, and daily 9-5 mid-May to mid-June and after Labor Day to mid-Oct. Admission $8 per private vehicle.
