The Brierfield Furnace is a historic district located in Brierfield, Alabama. It is also known as the Bibb Naval Furnace or the Brierfield Ironworks. It is currently located inside the Brierfield Ironworks Historical State Park.

The Brierfield Furnace traces its history back to 1861 when the site was developed by the Greensboro planter Caswell Campbell Huckabee. He had some help from the Bibb County Planter, Jonathan Newton Smith. Smith provided most of the capital, so the company was initially named the Bibb County Iron Company. They produced high quality iron products.

Today, the Brierfield Furnace is included in the Brierfield Ironworks Historical State Park alongside other ruins and structures. Some other buildings were also added to the site from nearby locations.
