This factory, the only one of its kind in the United States, features a woodworking shop, a saw mill, a blacksmith shop and an assembly room, all of which have been preserved. Demonstrations of antique equipment and guided tours explain the creation of wooden frames for saddle makers. Guided tours are available.
