Blacksmith Lenny Moore to be at Harmony Hall Plantation Village

Lenny Moore will be giving a blacksmithing demonstration Sunday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Harmony Hall Plantation Village. Visitors will see smoke and fire from the forge at the blacksmith shed. Moore, who lives in Greensboro, but grew up in Tar Heel and graduated from Tar Heel High School, shows young and old how the craft was done in the old days. You also can place an order for special work or purchase some of his completed work.

There also will be hatchet throwing, horseshoes, and recruitment for Backwoods Militia members. There will be food cooked in iron pots over open fires by Brandon Moore, and tours -- guided and self-guided -- of the historic house that was built about 1760 and still sits on its original foundation.

In other news, folks at Harmony Hall Plantation Village are seeking help to clean the grounds on Saturday, June 7 beginning at 8 a.m. and going throughout the day. Lunch will be served. Bring lawn mowers, leaf blowers, rakes, saws and other equipment.

Harmony Hall cookbooks, private-label jams and cider, and gift items also are available for purchase.

For the adventurous, hike the one-mile trail from the main house to the Cape Fear River. Be sure to have insect repellant and a water bottle.

Harmony Hall, which was the Revolutionary War-era home of Col. James Richardson, accepts donations, but does not charge admission.
