Have you ever ventured out to visit remote York County landmark Codorus Furnace?

A man was stuck in the Codorus Furnace stack this week. This drew attention to this York County, Pa., landmark, owned in its American Revolution heyday by Declaration of Independence signer James Smith.

It’s one of those landmarks featured in tourism brochures for years, but its remote location means that many York countians have never paid it a visit.
