  Burnham Blacksmith Shop

This is the Burnham Blacksmith Shop, built ca. 1850 on the Burnham Farm in East Hartford. This building contains late 19th/early 20th century tools and equipment used in the East Hartford area. Visitors will see horse harnesses, tobacco tools, household utensils, blacksmith forges, and more. This shop is the youngest of the three historic buildings in Martin Park. The Historical Society opens this building to the public during the summer.
