The Tredegar Iron Works was a historic iron foundry in Richmond, Virginia, United States of America, opened in 1837. During the American Civil War, the works served as the primary iron and artillery production facility of the Confederate States of America. The iron works survived destruction during the Evacuation Fire of 1865, and continued production through the middle of the 20th century.
