Demonstrator needed for Mount Prospect Historical Society Museum event in August

The Mount Prospect Historical Society is working on a new permanent blacksmith exhibit at their museum, which will commemorate John Meyn, Mount Prospect’s first blacksmith. Their 1906 carriage house will eventually be converted into a mock blacksmith shop, and in the meantime they want to host a blacksmith demonstration in the dooryard to get people excited for the new exhibit.

To this end, they are looking for a blacksmith to come demonstrate on one Saturday in August for about 3 hours in the morning/afternoon (exact date and times are flexible.)  Compensation is negotiable.  If you are interested or need more information, please contact Lindsay Rice by email at or by phone at (847)392-9006.

Thank you!
