There's even older stuff around too that's pretty accessible, such as Lock Ridge Furnace and the cement kilns in Coplay.
Armorcast was one of my favorite places to go. I've lived in birdsboro since I was 12 and spent most of my weekends in high school either exploring or just hanging out there. I even broke my foot playing airsoft there when I was 17. Its a shame its gone now. Even going in the last couple months before it was torn wasnt the same with everything gutted.
