DAMARISCOTTA — Jeffrey Miller, a master blacksmith and historian from Waldoboro, will demonstrate his trade from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 24, at the Chapman Hall House, 270 Main St. Miller will work at his 18th Century temporary forge, which he built, based on original forges of this type.

During his 40-plus years at the trade, Miller has worked as the head blacksmith at two museums: Old Sturbridge Village in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, and Fort at No. 4 in Charlestown, New Hampshire.

While at Chapman Hall House, Miller will forge a number of small items and share with the public insights into the daily work of blacksmiths as recorded in their account books and day books. According to Miller, the blacksmith’s work pattern changed according to the season, and he will show samples of items that the smith might make for his customers.

Admission will cost $5 for adults, or is free for children 16 and younger.
