historic redstone coke ovens

An important historic ruin, in desperate need of restoration and stabilization, was restored for generations to come. The success of the Redstone Coke Ovens restoration effort stems from four key influencers: a rich industrial history, the clear vision of several dedicated residents, secured funding from state and federal grants andsimple, responsive design solutions. The Bluegreen Team
embraced the historic landmark as a fundamental link to America’s past and as an integral asset to Town of Redstone. Signage and interpretive markers integrate with authentic, restoration-driven site enhancements. These features, together, encourage discovery and provide a ‘kit of tools’ to understanding and preserving Redstone’s coking history.
