Step Back in Time with Blacksmithing Demos at Colvin Run

Take a walk back in time as “Blacksmithing Demonstrations” return to Colvin Run Mill on Sunday, March 1, 2020.

Come to the mill and watch as the blacksmith fires up his forge and works with hammer and tongs to make iron tools and utensils. This free program is suitable for all ages and runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. No reservations are required.

Blacksmithing is weather and temperature dependent, so please call ahead to confirm there will be a demonstration. These demonstrations are held at the mill on select dates throughout the spring, summer and fall.
