Blacksmith Shop

Located in the historic village of Glen Haven off M-109, this fully restored 1920's blacksmith shop provides demonstrations of transforming bars of iron into beautiful, useful items. Watch the blacksmith take a piece of iron, heat it in the forge and pound out useful shapes and parts. The exhibit is very interactive, so feel free to ask questions. You can see some of the parts they have made in the shop and ask the blacksmith questions about his trade or the history of the local area. While you are watching, you will learn about D. H. Day and his role in developing the Glen Haven area.

The blacksmith shop is open Memorial Day to Labor Day 11-5,staffed by volunteers. Days and hours vary after Labor Day. Public restrooms are available by the Glen Haven General Store.
