Hammer and Tongs: Adirondack Blacksmiths Then and Now

July 23, 2018 | 7:30 pm

Elizabeth Folwell, Dan King, Mike Parwana

In the 19th century the region had numerous iron mines, and nearly every community had a resident blacksmith to make tools and hardware for home, barn and mill. Farriers were vital to keeping horses—the ubiquitous mode of travel—well shod for every kind of work. In this program, a panel of contemporary blacksmiths talk about the challenges and rewards of turning hot metal into useful and decorative objects in the 21st century.
