| Walnford Day

| We will be demonstrating and holding a membership meeting at Walnford Park on May 21st. We have decided to bring two forges though if more interest is shown we may bring more. This is a meet at a nice location and with two forge setups members should be able to swing a hammer and do some forging. Walnford is also known as Crosswicks Creek Park and is in Upper Freehold, N.J. Please come out especially with your family to enjoy a day at the hidden jewel of he Monmouth County Park system - Walnford park. We are usually immediately across from the working gristmill. There are many activities for children so this is another great family event. Historic Walnford is the 36 acre Historic District at the heart of Crosswick Creek Park. This country estate and former mill village provides a window to view more than a century of social, technological, and environmental history in Western Monmouth County. The site includes a large home built for the Waln Family in 1774, an 1879 Carriage House, and assorted outbuildings and farm structures. Much of the site's interpretation is connected to the newly restored and operating late 19th century Gristmill.
