Blacksmith demonstration planned at Harmony Hall

Blacksmiths Lenny Moore and Mat Patterson are expected to be at Harmony Hall Plantation Village on Sunday to fire up the forge and demonstrate the craft. Moore, who lives in Greensboro, but grew up in Tar Heel and graduated from Tar Heel High School, usually appears monthly at the Revolutionary War-era home of Col. James Richardson.

The plantation, which is owned by the Bladen County Historical Society and covers 100 acres, is open Sundays from 2-4 p.m.

Also Sunday, Tony Parnell will be cooking over an open flame using iron pots, there will be tomahawk throwing and horseshoe tossing, main house tours by Ethan DeBarge and Bobby DeVane will be available, as well as self-guided tours of the grounds. For the adventurous, there's a one-mile trail from the main house to the Cape Fear River.

Field Marshal Bobby Lewis encourages Backwoods Militia members to attend in full Colonial-era attire.
