Contemporary Gunmakers & Allied Artists

February 9, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

Regular Admission

Cost: Regular Museum Admission

From the first arrival of the Ohio Company settlers to present day this area has always been the forefront of quality craftsmanship. Firearms were an essential tool in everyday life and used not only for hunting but for competition shooting. The makers of these longrifles took great pride in their workmanship in the same manner as today’s craftsman do their work.

Campus Martius will feature the work of several dozen traditional gunmakers from around the Ohio Valley as well as several other craftsmen who work in the manner of the 18th and 19th century. Many of these artists are nationally recognized for their work which can be found in museums and private collections around the country. Featured along with the gunmakers will be horn makers, hunting bag makers, leather workers, tinsmithing, cabinet making and other allied trades.
