Your Experience

Feel the heat of the fire as a blacksmith pounds hot steel into candle holders, horse shoes, and many other objects.  Ask questions as he does, and then try it yourself!


The shop was originally known as the Star Blacksmith Shop, bought by Robert Benjamin and a partner in 1885.  It remained in the Benjamin family and in operation until 1965.
