Loading Events
This event has passed.

Blacksmiths were an essential part of life in the 1800s. They would make not only weapons, but items like nails, hooks, and locks- things that are now readily available and often taken for granted. People had to rely on blacksmiths to fix metal objects or create one to meet the needs of daily life.
Join a Red Clay State Historic Park staff member to learn about blacksmithing, the Cherokees’ relationship with the craft, and enjoy a demonstration of the art. Red Clay staff will also be showing traditional Cherokee weaponry, including a war club, a blowgun, and a flintlock rifle.
