The Work of the Blacksmith - Green Family Forge, Trinity, NL

Creator(s): Green Family Forge: A Blacksmith Museum

The first snowfall of the season in Trinity, Newfoundland and Labrador, and outside the Green Family Forge, men wait for the blacksmith to put winter shoes on their horses, a common sight in communities on Canada's East coast. This exhibit follows the inner workings of the Green Family Forge in five sections: the members of the Green family; a brief history of blacksmithing; the restoration process that brought the forge back to life as a living history museum; some examples of more than 1,500 artefacts currently on display.
