Purgatory Ironworks
The blacksmiths at Andersonville, Georgia notes that they are taking a somewhat more proactive role in making the forge a functioning bussiness again while still being true to the craft. They are now accepting orders and commissions for historicic preservation work — whether it is replacement, repair, or new work. They work in mild steel or true wrought iron when necesary. Email Trenton Tye or call the foundary at 229.924.1022
