A blacksmith will demonstrate the centuries-old metalcraft  wheel setting on November 5 at the Cherokee Strip Museum and Rose Hill School in Perry.

Weather permitting, a wheel-setting demonstration will take place at 10:30 a.m. with the museum’s resident blacksmith, Tom Nelson. The wheelwright’s craft goes back thousands of years, and was essential in an age of wagon use. They were skilled in the art of building and repairing wooden wheels.

Other activities in the blacksmith shop will take place from 10 a.m.–2 p.m.

The demonstration is free to attend but donations are appreciated. Paid admission is required to tour the main museum. For more information please call 580-336-2405 or email csmuseum@history.ok.gov.

Prior to the demonstration, the Cherokee Strip Historical Society will host the Saltfork Craftsmen Artist-Blacksmith Association for its monthly meeting.
