Iron Mountain In 1908, John T. Jones built this experimental blast furnace, named the "Ardis Furnace" after his daughter, to test an iron extraction process he developed. The furnace as originally built was a huge rotating metal tube installed at a slight incline and held in place by a series of concrete supports. The Ardis Furnace was initially a success, but a fundamental heat problem limited its durability, and within two years Jones lost his personal fortune and the project was abandoned. Some elements of Jones's technology were incorporated into later successful operations, but the ruins of the concrete supports are the only remnants of the Ardis furnace.

The cement constructions remain, and the estate is now McCourtie Park.

In 1900 the light was painted white for the first time, to assuage the complaints of mariners who said the brick was difficult to see. It remained that color until 1975, when it was sand blasted, and returned to its natural color. The lantern is capped by a copper roof.
