J. Allen Gower photographed the Civil War Janney Iron Furnace
in Ohatchee. The furnace was constructed in 1863 and partially destroyed
by Union forces on July 14, 1864. Local efforts are attempting to
locate outbuildings and other industrial features associated with
charcoal iron production. Calhoun County has purchased the property
and adjacent twenty acres with the intent of creating a historical
park at the Janney site.
