Iron was a necessity for the early local colonists. Cooking implements were vital, as were tools, hardware, nails, shovels, plows and many other items." Presenters Ed Kirby and Dick Paddock, who have studied the local iron industry extensively, will explain details about the Salisbury iron district and its forges, blast furnaces and "iron men." The program will include a brief documentary film "Visions of Iron" and a description of the iron and charcoal making processes. The program is free to the general public, although donations are gratefully accepted.
