Juniata Iron Works, also known as the Hatfield Iron Works, is a national historic district located at Porter Township in Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania. It consists of six contributing buildings associated with a former ironworks: two ironmaster's mansions, a store and post office, a grist mill, and two workers houses. The first ironmaster's mansion was built in 1841, and is a 2 1⁄2-story brick house with a rear ell. The second ironmaster's mansion dates to 1867, and is a 2 1⁄2-story brick house with a rear ell. It features a Federal style main entrance. The store and post office has a brick first story and frame second story and houses a bed and breakfast. The 3 1⁄2-story grist mill was built in 1856. The buildings are associated with a historic iron furnace first developed on the south side of the Frankstown Branch of the Juniata River. The complex moved to the north side in the late-1840s. The iron works closed in the mid-1870s and the machinery dismantled.
It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.
