Trehörning Blast Furnace

Askersund, Sweden

The blast furnace of Trehörning was built originally in 1636. In 1648 Louis De Geer acquired the site and affiliated it to Godegård Ironworks. The factory belonged to Godegård until 1888, when it was sold and ran down in 1889. The main restorations were made in 1932 and 1969. The original buildings are well-preserved.
