Blacksmith needed for RR Crossing & Country Fair on June 16 in Mendota, IL

The Mendota Museum & Historical Society will be hosting their annual event of RR Crossing & Country Fair day on June 16, 2018.  In past years they had a blacksmith as part of the vintage craft area, but missed having a blacksmith in attendance last year.  This is a small but growing event, it encompasses both the Union Depot RR Museum and the Breaking the Prairie Museum.  Events and attractions include:  tours of the museums and vintage rail cars, vintage agricultural equipment, rope making, corn shelling, Cowboys, food, etc.  If any blacksmiths are interested to come and spend part of their day at the fair, please contact Dar Wujek at 815-539-3373, or send an email to
