#HandsOnHistory: It Takes a Village Blacksmithing Demonstration at KTM&HC This Sunday

On Sunday, October 2, Keeler Tavern Museum & History Center (KTM&HC) will host a blacksmithing demonstration as part of its newly opened exhibit, HandsOnHistory (#HOH): It Takes a Village.

Featuring local blacksmiths Ralph Lapidus and Alan Horowitz, the demonstration is free to the public, an interactive way to learn about historic trades and tools from Ridgefield.

The award-winning exhibition will run through Sunday, November 6 and explores the interdependency of farms, families, and businesses across Ridgefield’s history, showcasing individual trades and their tools. Check out our website for a complete listing of future demonstrations and activities, held each Sunday through November 6. Site admission will be FREE on these Sundays for all visitors: admission includes a guided tour of our historic tavern museum as well as entry to It Takes a Village and related family demonstrations.
