HISTORIC SITE: Curtin Village  at Eagle Ironworks is one of Central Pennsylvania's most unique and best preserved state-owned historical sites. Curtin Village was part of a large iron plantation operated by Roland Curtin and his family from 1810 to 1921. Today, the buildings and grounds are  preserved to give visitors historical insights into life as it was in a company town in the 1800s.  The site includes:

- the waterwheel-powered Pleasant Furnace and 19th century machines and tools;
- the intriguing Curtin Family Mansion, built in 1830;
- furnishings including period antiques, clocks, glassware, dolls, toys, and clothing;
- a display of locally-found arrowheads;
- PA Civil War Governor Andrew Curtin's desk and his the personal carriage; 
- the workers' village.
The historical site is owned by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission and managed by the Roland Curtin Foundation.
