Historian Ed Kirby weaves the narrative thread through this complex story of iron making in the Salisbury Iron District, a geographic area that includes Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York states. Visions of Iron is the culmination of years of work piecing together the intricate network of business and social relationships that was the defining force of the region’s historic development. The movie is a perfect companion to the book, Echoes of Iron in Connecticut’s Northwest Corner.
