Glidden blacksmith club seeks new members
DeKALB – “Blacksmiths Wanted” is not a common ad today, but that is what the Joseph F. Glidden Homestead & Historical Center in DeKalb is looking for – experienced or aspiring blacksmiths.
A blacksmith club has been formed at the national historic site where Joseph Glidden invented his popular style of barbed wire, The Winner, in 1873. The club provides living history demonstrations from May through November in the Phineas Vaughan Blacksmith Shop at the homestead, 921 W. Lincoln Highway in DeKalb.
Both experienced blacksmiths and those interested in learning the trade are welcome to become involved in this endeavor.
