Ironton, Utah is between Springville and Provo and is the old location of the Columbia Steel Corporation’s pig iron plant. Many foundations and remains can be seen, lower in this post are photos of me and my family exploring the remains.

The coal mine operated by the company was near Sunnyside, limestone is derived from local sources near Provo. Geneva Steel Company eventually took over the plant and mine.(*).

Update May 2016: It’s mostly being taken down for new development, see photos here.
