Although the Civil War never came to Joanna Furnace, the ironmaster’s sons did their civic duty and went off to war to protect the Union from the southern rebellion. Today the Hay Creek Festival remembers these men …. and women … who sacrificed for our great country by offering a special interpretation to remember our countries’ Civil War history. Reenactors from the 69th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry will be setting up camp and telling the story of a soldier’s life, plus will offer daily firing demonstrations in the town square. Also look for a Civil War medical impression and civilian reenactors who will talk about life on the home front.

Hay Creek Valley Historical Association

On October 19, 1975, the Hay Creek Valley Historical Association was officially organized. It’s Objective: to support and demonstrate, to foster interest in and appreciation for our local heritage, and to provide a living experience of Berks County’s rich agricultural and technological past. This is accomplished by the demonstration of early American crafts and trades during annual special events. And when in the fall of 1979, Bethlehem Mines donated historic Joanna Furnace to the HCVHA, guided walking tours added yet another dimension to our living experience.
