Blacksmithing Friday in the Forge, September 15, 2017

September 15, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

Trails & Sails Weekend -- FREE Open Door Event!

Step back in time with us for a day of blacksmithing in the Essex Company forge, the company that built the city of Lawrence!

Richard Wright of the Granite State Hammer Alliance will be demonstrating the craft of traditional blacksmithing methods, forging both iron and mild steel to create items for practical use in our historic courtyard. The forge was first in use in the early 1880's when the Essex Company complex at 6 Essex Street in Lawrence was constructed.

Call 978-686-9230 for more information.
