Redwell–Isabella Furnace Historic District is a historic iron furnace complex and national historic district located near Luray, Page County, Virginia. The district includes two contributing buildings, three contributing sites, and one contributing structure. The two buildings are the Isabella Furnace Office (c. 1800), a two-story stone building with Georgian interior detail, and the Yager Spring House (c. 1800), a two-story stone dwelling with a large cooking fireplace and a stone and frame addition made in 1965. Both buildings have metal-sheathed gable roofs. The district also includes a cemetery (now devoid of markers), a stone foundation, the furnace bridge mound, and Yager Spring, the power source for the furnace and later mills beginning about 1787.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.[1]
