Built in the 1970s

The forge at Coggeshall was donated by Luther Blount, owner of Blount Boats and Seafood in Warren. He had fond childhood memories of visiting his uncles forge in Maine in the early 20th century. In homage to his uncle, he had this unique building constructed at this boatyard in Warren and relocated to the museum property. Luther was a close friend of George Sisson, one of the founders of Coggeshall Farm Museum
