Blacksmithing at LeNoir Forge

For the village blacksmith the hammer and the anvil were a way of life, but for many it was a passion. 

 “I like to think of blacksmithing as a fundamental art. As long as we have raw material, we can make almost anything. Preserving the knowledge and understanding of how things are done with hammer, anvil and fire is extremely important,”   

Bob Bell,  President of Clinch River Blacksmith Guild in East Tennessee

Blacksmithing demonstrations take place Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 2:00 – 4:00 during July and August.
