The Mount Prospect Historical Society is working toward establishing a blacksmith shop exhibit in honor of the community’s former long-time blacksmith, John Meyn [the Meyns were both blacksmiths and farriers], planned to open next summer. Blacksmith Justin Stech gives a sneak preview as he demonstrates and explains the trade of blacksmithing from noon to 4 p.m. Be sure to stop by the Mount Prospect Historical Society on the way to or from Mount Prospect’s Oktoberfest/Trick or Treat event that same day.
