At the May 21 Open House, there will be a blacksmith demonstration by John Weiskopf outside of the mill from 1:00 to 1:30pm. Mill tours will begin after the demonstration and will be available until 4:00pm.
Take a tour of Montgomery County's only water-powered gristmill and experience many hands-on, family-friendly demonstrations! Visitors will also learn the art and history of early American blacksmithing, and see the smithy forge tools from scrap iron.
