Get out your periodic table of elements, my friends.  The basic properties of iron and other forged metals dictate what you can and cannot do to them.  Ask the staff why blacksmiths were so important back in the day and how the world is solving for forged iron products today.

Ideas, Notes, & Tips

Call ahead!  They close a lot without notice.  I guess blacksmith's can do that. 

There's also a cool place across the street called Auntie M's Emporium.  It's an antique store, but it's located in a historic building that used to be the town jail.  Who doesn't love seeing an old-time jail?
