I have a relative who lives in Saugus and it was her suggestion that we visit here. It is a fascinating place with working mechanisms, water wheel, and where centuries ago hundreds of men labored to produce iron. The original buildings are long gone but they have been rebuilt to show how much work it was in those early settler days. Most of the laborers here were Irishmen serving prison terms in Ireland, then brought here to do slave labor. It is an amazing place and the park ranger did a wonderful job of telling the stories and demonstrating the mechanics and what types if iron was made. Anyone who enjoys learning history, this is a great do not miss visit. Definitely a hidden gem.

Took my mom and brother during a visit and it was both educational but a nice outdoor activity without any heavy duty cardio for my mom who is getting a little less athletic but still very active.

If you're visiting Salem, this is a stop you should make! While it takes you out of the witch trials realm, the initial building you see when you park is very similar to the "Witch House" in Salem, given the architecture style of the time. Huge disclaimer, the site is open on a very limited basis due to Covid. What gave this site such a strong rating for me was the rangers on site. They're "roaming" rangers, so there are a few that walk the grounds to answer questions. I would call ahead to see if any events are going on the day you plan on visiting, because there are some blacksmithing demonstrations that occur during this. Otherwise, they show you how iron was made and how the tools impacted every day life in early colonial America. Its a really fun site to visit, I'm sure kids would really enjoy it once its back up and running in its entirety. Its tucked away in a small town, we didn't see too many restaurants on our way in so pack snacks. The site is much larger than it looks, and there is some construction going on so be prepared to walk a bit.

Besides its historical importance, Iron Works is a worth to visit place. Your kids will like there. And if you catch a good weather, bring some food and snacks to have a picnic with the family.

I took the tour and was highly impressed with the amount of information and history strewn throughout the tour and the location.
Great for adults or kids.
The iron mill was my favorite part but being able to explore the property after the tour was just as wonderful!

The Saugus Iron Works produced cast and wrought iron from 1646 to 1668, then fell to disrepair, then returned to the earth. In the 1950s a recovery project was begun, and the whole place has been gorgeously reconstructed. There are several stages of iron production, much of it cleverly powered by waterwheels.
They don't produce iron now, but the waterwheels can still be operated (by the tour guides) to show you how they power the massive bellows or the giant (500 lb cast iron!!) hammerhead or the mechanics that flatten and slice the iron bars.
I think this is one of those places where you get MUCH more out of a tour than if you just walk around and look at stuff. The tour guides are awesome. Maybe better for older kids, perhaps 10+.
And it's FREE.
We did not do the house tour yet.

Excellent place to visit. Great history and if you’re lucky to get a guided tour it makes it so complete! Definitely worth the time!

This park is one of the best in the National Park system. We have been to over 30 parks so far since 2016 and this is definitely in the top 5. It is a small area but it is very educational and it is incredible how the buildings were rebuilt. The artifacts that were found on the site are amazing, you can almost feel what it was like to live there.

We did not go on a guided tour, but still found the site fascinating and worth stopping in. The museum is a little dated looking, and probably would have been better with a guide, but the history of the site makes up for it.

The Saugus Iron Works has something for everybody – the recreated and operational buildings of an early colonial iron works, a picturesque location on a tidal river, a restored 1680’s house, and rangers who know how give tours that are informative, interesting, and fun – all for free. The visitor center offered a friendly greeting, a map, information on tours, and a nice gift shop. We stopped at the small museum and watched a short, but comprehensive, video before joining the 2:15 Industrial site tour. You can visit the buildings and grounds on your own (with or without the audio guide downloaded from the park’s website), but we learned so much on Ranger Paul’s tour. He explained every step of the iron making process as we walked through the blast furnace, forge, and rolling and splitting mill. Another ranger operated the waterwheels that ran the huge bellows in the blast furnace and the machinery in the splitting mill. We followed our tour of the industrial site and grounds with Ranger Kevin’s excellent tour of the 1680’s house. I appreciated the consideration given to the human history here – from the Pawtucket to the Puritans, from the Scots prisoners of war brought in as indentured servants to the people involved in finding and restoring this amazing site. We’ve visited 4 National Historical Sites in Massachusetts this summer, and this was our favorite.
