I'm a blacksmith and I was visiting Lewes while on a break from a nearby blacksmithing conference, so I couldn't very well pass up John's forge. The best thing about it is that it is first and foremost a working forge. Williamsbirg is a working forge, but its priority is interpretation for tourists. Preservation Forge's interior ain't pretty (Except to a blacksmith), but it's real. The "Museum" on the sign misleads some. Much of the interpretive aspects are just observation, though John and/or his apprentice will certainly answer questions if the questions don't interfere with work. Watching and taking in the atmosphere of a working blacksmith shop are educational in themselves.
