You are invited to visit the last surviving 1700's structure of its kind in Virginia's Northern Neck!

The story of this tavern and its relationship to the development of Northumberland County and Virginia's Northern Neck reflects what happened in countless court house villages throughout Virginia and the nation.

Dan's Forge

The Blacksmith Forge was the dream of a volunteer named Dan Purvis. Unfortunately Dan passed away before the building was completed in 2005.

The Heathsville Blacksmith Forge is set up with a working coal forge powered by a manual bellows. The Guild fashions all types of metal work; from nails to garden gates. Much of their work is custom requests. The guild is pleased to have you work on a project, if hammering metal is your thing or could be—come and visit the Blacksmith Shop.

Blacksmith Guild at Work in the Forge: Thursday, Friday and Saturday: 9:00 am-1:00 pm, weather permitting
