It was deja vu all over again at Waldie Blacksmith Shop in Downtown Milton as the historic shop, a foundational local business from 19th Century Milton and now home of Milton Historical Society, recently hosted the Milton Chamber of Commerce’s Business After Hours event — the Chamber itself a local organization from the 19th Century.
About 45 Chamber members gathered at the Shop on September 25 for a couple of hours after work over wine and cheese. They got to see a live blacksmithing demonstration and watch an abbreviated history of Milton (which included fascinating details about the history and evolution of our downtown) by local historian and author John McDonald. They also learned how to use the Cooke/Dills Archives and better understand how local businesses can benefit from a relationship with the Society through room rentals, guest presentations, membership and sponsorship.
At the end of the evening, four lucky members won three high-quality books of local history and a one-year corporate membership to the Society.
