The Richfield Historical Society (RHS) is in the process of building a Blacksmith Shop in the Richfield Historical Park. This past summer the Kohl Farm Barn was dismantled and the timbers from the barn built in the 1800's were saved and used to frame portions of the blacksmith building. Timbers are also used as support for the roof.
The next step to complete the blacksmith shop is to enclose the building. RHS is looking for lumber from pine trees. If you have a 13 foot or greater pine tree in your yard, or know of someone who has one, that will be removed please respond to this post. Your information will be forwarded to RHS. Please include your phone number so RHS can contact you. Your personal information will only be shared with RHS and not be published on this website.
Your tree could have a new life, just as the Kohl Barn, by allowing RHS to use the tree trunk for timber. Remember the RHS goal is to "Get the Mill Grinding." Any money RHS can save by receiving donated pine trees for the Blacksmith Shop will be used on restoration of the Messer/Mayer Mill.
If you really like blacksmithing you might want to donate $100.00 and have a horseshoe engraved with your name and really get this building completed.
Thank you in advance.
