Cast Yourself as an Ironworker!

Come to an iron casting demonstration at Saugus Iron Works

U. S. National Park Rangers will be running hands-on activities about how cast iron was made at Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site in the 17th century for Trails & Sails 2017. Come spend the day at Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site. Carve your own mold on the day of the event - first come, first served. Hear the roar of the small furnace and feel the heat of the iron radiating from the ladle as molten iron flows once again into sand molds. It's not something you can see very often! 

Special Instructions:

  • Events are out doors.
  • Bring a lawn chair, a picnic lunch, and of course, a camera.
  • Visit the museum and see some of the original artifacts of the 1646 iron works.
  • Event Capacity: 40
