Friday blacksmith shows at Wyman

In its efforts to show visitors a glimpse of "living history," the Wyman Museum plans to have blacksmith demonstrations every Friday this summer.

Dalton Reed, of Clark, has worked for the museum for about five years, Curator Nicky Boulger said, and has wanted to show off his craft for a while.

After searching, the museum purchased a blacksmith shop out of Walden for Reed to use.

"This is a living history museum," Boulger said, "and we want people to be able to watch how things were made in the old days, exactly as they were made."

Reed plans to make several things, including tools, a dinner bell and a tomahawk out of a railroad spike.

Boulger added he would take requests from visitors, who can purchase the items and materials from Reed at his shop at the museum.

Reed expects to demonstrate his skills from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each Friday from now through September or October, Boulger said.
