The Forest Hill Divide Museum

Making a stop at the Forest Hill Divide museum this weekend will get you front row seats for a live blacksmithing demonstration in the museum's new blacksmith shop.  You can also try your hand at gold panning and sample some Indian fry bread.  Like all Heritage Trail museum events, it's all free. (Breathtaking scenic drive also included.)
