Heritage Site in the News
Blacksmith Shop Dedication in May 2014
Construction on the blacksmith shop at the Heritage Site began right after Christmas 2013, with stonemason David Vandiver laying out corner piers. Father and son construction team Bob and Andy Slack took over at that point and raised the frame. Work progressed in-between snow days and rain during the coldest winter Sautee has seen in a while.
The shop will be home to a collection of historic blacksmithing tools collected by the late Dr. Tom Lumsden from the Sautee Valley home of the Ethridge family. The Ethridge shop was originally in Barrow County, Georgia. The shop was officially opened on Saturday, May 24.
