You won’t want to miss Burritt’s Fire on the Mountain on Saturday, March 4th, from 10:00am – 3:00pm. Our historic cooks will transport you back to the 1800s with all of your senses as you see, hear, smell, and maybe even taste their work as they prepare historic recipes over our open fires and cast-iron cook stove. In addition, our blacksmiths will be firing up the forges throughout the historic park to demonstrate this fascinating skill. Blacksmiths were more than horseshoers, there were vitally important to daily life. Smiths could make all types of tools, including those used in cooking, accessories for the home, knives and even fashion accessories. Please join us for this memorable day in the historic park! Please note, demonstrations may vary based on weather conditions.
