The Endor Iron Furnace was an iron furnace that operated from 1861-1864 and again from 1870-1871. It was built to take advantage of the iron deposits along the Deep River. The furnace is located near Cumnock, North Carolina, in Lee County, North Carolina, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

During the American Civil War, the furnace produced pig iron for the Confederate Army.

In 2001, the property was acquired by the Triangle Land Conservancy.
