Jim Ellis, Master Blacksmith
We are now officially closed for the season, but we are not inactive! We have recently added the Old Jail and the Jim Ellis blacksmith shop to our facilities. Both of these are located adjacent to the Old Custom House, which houses the Coast Guard Museum. We were fortunate to be able to utilize these facilities with the blessing of the Town of Barnstable, and the Coast Guard Museum. The Historical Society will be applying for CPC funds to continue the work that was recently completed on the 1st phase of upgrading the entire complex where we are located. This process is somewhat lengthy but when complete, It will become a showcase for the Society, the Coast Guard Museum and Unitarian Church Historic District Complex.
