Blacksmithing Demonstrations Made Possible by Grant

Friday, April 1, 2022

Sgt. Alvin C. York State Historic Park is proud to announce a partnership with the Tennessee Arts Commission and the Sgt. York Patriotic Foundation as we have secured an Artist-in-Residence at the York Blacksmith Shop! Mr. Matthew Redmon, of Aurora Colorado, will be manning the shop on Thursday-Sundays, 10am-3pm, for the next 12 weeks! Matthew is a graduate of Colorado State University with a double major in International Studies and World History. He has a strong interest in Blacksmithing, Historic Sites, and Public History, and feels that his time here will be a perfect combination of his interests. He is looking forward to demonstrating and furthering his skills here at the homesite of Sgt. Alvin C. York. #tnstateparks #yorkhome100 #tnartscommission #blacksmithing
