Blacksmithing Classes

Introduction to Blacksmithing Classes

Blacksmithing classes are geared to the students level. Classes are very popular and a good way to share some important history.  This class is intended for adults. However, responsible and well-behaved youth are invited to participate with adult supervision.

Class fees will go to promote the art of blacksmithing. All interested in such classes should contact the Tonopah Historic Mining Park office at (775) 482-9274

The Tonopah Historic Mining Park gift shop sells open-ended blacksmithing class gift certificates & 50 lb. bags  of coal or coke for $45.00 a bag. “The Art of Blacksmithing” book is $20.00 & “The Backyard Blacksmith” is $25.

A list of lodging in Tonopah can be found here. Dry camping is available on mining park grounds.
