on the weekend on April 19/21 the Freetown Ma., historical Society will host the second Hammer-in at the reconstructed blacksmith shop on their grounds. Our demonstrators this y ear are Brian and Candi Martens, a husband and wife tag team from Rochester, NY. Candi is a past president of the New York Designer Blacksmiths and is the Blacksmithing Director at the Arc and Flame in Rochester. Brian is an instructor at Arc and Flame and is a Past treasurer of the New York Designer Blacksmiths.
We had a nice crowd last year and looking for another this year. We have room for several campers if someone wants to make a weekend out of it. There are hotels nearby and resturants and other attractions. All the buildings on the grounds will open so you can see a bit of history of the area as well.
The Freetown Historical Museum is located in Assonet Ma., a small village in Freetown, just north of Fall River, Ma off rt 79.
Hope to see you there.
