Dover Blacksmith Shop

Today was the last opportunity until next year to see Eli Nikkanen demonstrate blacksmith skills at the Dover Blacksmith Shop on Butter Road.  I happened to see the sign indicating the shop was open so we stopped by to check it out.  Dale, Susan and I were fascinated by all the history in that little shop!
