    Here's what I found on it...

    Scituate has played an important role in many of the United States wars. During the Revolutionary War, 76 cannons were forged at the Hope Furnace. During World War II, Scituate was the site of a radio monitoring system that intercepted enemy signals. Because of this, in 1946, the Chopmist Hill area was considered as the headquarters of the United Nations

    Hope furnace is located at the yum yum ice cream shop by hope dam or that general vicinity if I remember correctly, most of the surrounding area was lumbered to feed the furnace, and there was an old iron mine with low grade iron ore in the area.
