The Blacksmith Shop was an important role in the early American settlement. All metal tools, implements, building materials, and horse shoes were made by the Blacksmith. The Museum has a fully functioning coal fired Blacksmith Shop where we hold classes through Howard County Recreation and Park for anyone wanting to learn the art of Blacksmithing.
After taking the Blacksmithing classes, you can schedule forge time at the Museum to work on your personal projects. Click the link below to connect with a volunteer to schedule time and pay for the use of a forge.
