Blacksmiths Gather in Newtonia, Mo to Share Their Craft
Newton County, Missouri -
A gathering of blacksmiths was held today in Newtonia, Missouri. The "Hammer In" gathering featured eight different blacksmiths from around the area pounding out and welding different metals. Dinner bell chimes, candle holders, and knives were among some of the items being made. The event was held behind the Ritchey mansion, a building rich in blacksmithing history. Blacksmiths, as well as blacksmith enthusiasts in attendance, are very excited to see an old hobby start to pick back up again. This year marked the first year of the "Hammer In" event. They expect even more to come out next year.
