The Cotswold Forge was built in Snowshills, England in the Cotswold region about 1600. The forge was owned and operated by members of the Stanley family until Charles Stanley died in 1909.
Blacksmiths made wrought iron tools and appliances in this forge for nearly 300 years. Before
the modern industrial era, the blacksmith was essential to the survival of communities everywhere.
Greenfield Village blacksmiths used this forge to produce and repair household and farming implements
for Greenfield Village, just as the Stanleys did for generations.
