It’s never too early to start thinking about the perfect Father’s Day gift. Why not give dad an experience he will be sure to never forget? The Ligonier Valley Historical Society has the perfect event for the entire family. We are proud to present our annual Hammer In blacksmith event, on June 20th, 2020, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, at the Compass Inn Museum.

Hammer In gives Compass Inn Museum’s blacksmiths, as well as the Pittsburgh Area Artists Blacksmith Association, the opportunity to get their hands dirty and put their craft on display. Get a first-hand look at the skill and precision of our 25 blacksmiths, as you delve into this ancient practice. Feel the heat, and watch sparks fly as our aproned craftsman give metal form. Each metal piece will be for sale in the museum shop.

Let dad know your love is as strong as steel, and join us June 20th and 21st!
