Home of the Virginia Furnace, this historical roadside park, which is situated along the banks of the Muddy Creek/Cheat River, was acquired by the Daughters of the American Revolution (Kingwood Chapter) in 1933. The DAR added a pump pavilion and two picnic shelters and a fireplace and have preserved the furnace and surrounding bottom land. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1999. It's a nice quiet place with a lot of history which sits right next to the Muddy Creek Falls.

Located just three miles north of Albright, WV on WV 26, North Preston Hwy, there is roadside parking available. A short walk down into the bottoms near the furnace will take you to the falls. While not a conventional plunge type falls, and actually more like rapids, this area is very photogenic and when the water is running right, can be the source for some dramatic images.
