Gore Place Sheepshearing Festival
(fleece joke goes here)

A demonstration in Waltham on an historic site.

The mansion at Gore Place was built in 1806, set on a 45 acre house lot with surrounding farmlands. The Gores entertained such notable dignitaries as Daniel Webster and James Monroe in their beautiful home, “outfitted for all seasons.”

We will be demonstrating blacksmithing in relatively period manner (it's only changes so much in the last 4000 years) through the day. There're lots of other things nearly as interesting as blacksmithing going on also.
