  • Great experience, a special thanks to Yvonne what a patient and super teacher she is. Thanks Kim & Brain for the invite!  more »
  • Loved hearing about the blacksmith in town, options of purchasing products, and hearing the details about Galena's history.  more »
  • In season--at certain times--you can see iron work craftsmen who will explain the process to you. Located in a barn like structure right downtown-one block behind Main Street.  more »

  • The blacksmiths are happy to visit and explain some history and the work.
