Muddy Pond Forge was established in 1989 as a "1900's" blacksmith and carriage shop.
Services include a full service wheelwright shop to build or rebuild wheels from as small as a child's wagon to the largest wagon wheel.
"We do general wagon and carriage repairs or we will do a complete restoration.
We do historical restorations using the same materials, procedures and the same quality as were used when the carriages were built originally.
We do only top quality paint jobs, traditional carriage upholstery with tufted seats in leather, leatherette or cloth. We make standing tops for spring wagons or folding tops for carriages.
In our blacksmith department we can forge and make any part needed for wagons and carriages from a pair of shafts to a missing part. We also do general blacksmithing services for the community.
Our shop is equipped with the best machinery from the late 1800's to the early 1900's. It is all run with flat belts off a line shaft soon to be powered by a 1903 Steam Engine."
