Blacksmith Shop

The Old Stone House Museum’s Blacksmith Shop


In the fall of 2009, children from the Old Stone House Museum’s Time Travelers Camp took part in raising the timber frame of the new blacksmith shop next to the Alexander Twilight House. The next spring the building was open for educational use. Besides the big brick forge, there are a couple of portable forges and anvils that can be set up outside, so that multiple students can work at the same time. Classes range from learning beginning skills, to making a pair of tongs, to creating an old-fashioned thumb latch for a door. There are regular hammer-ins during the summer.
