Park Rangers and volunteers give daily lectures and conduct various craft demonstrations from spring through fall at Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site. The most popular demonstration, the Hands-on Molding and Casting Program, is held whenever the park is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Other activities include holiday celebrations, aluminum casting, living history weekends, apple picking, and blacksmithing, sheep sheering, and charcoal making demonstrations. For a schedule, visit the National Park Service’s Calendar web page for the park.
