Woodworking Shop

Wood was plentiful in the early days and many of the items that the first settlers needed were made at home – bowls, rolling pins, tables, stools and shovels! Goods that could not be made at home could be bought or ordered through a merchant in town. Carpenters and blacksmiths often worked side by side (as are our buildings), each completing part of the project – barrels with iron hoops, wheels and rims, wagons and sleds!

Build in 2009, this building is a replica used to house our historic woodworking tools.
