Description

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

Blacksmith Richard Wright 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.

Timing Note: This event will end at 1pm, please be aware of this updated time frame which is slightly different from what is listed in the printed Trails & Sails guidebook.
