Green Family Forge

Trinity Historical Society Inc.

The Green family worked as Blacksmiths in Trinity from the 1750s to 1955. Ada Nemec (nee Green) donated the forge containing a collection of tools used by six generations of her family. The present smithy was built between 1895 & 1900 and is unusually large – four blacksmiths could work here making horse shoes, anchors and other iron products used in the fishery, the farm and the home. This site is fully operational as a living history museum with demonstrations taking place with the Blacksmiths from Monday to Saturday. Drop in to see what the blacksmiths may be making today and purchase some of their wares.

The Green Family Forge was designated a Registered Heritage Structure by the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador in 1991.

Trinity Historical Society Inc. (THS) was founded in 1964 as a not-for-profit organization, incorporated in 1971 and registered as a charity in 1977. It owns and operates the Trinity Historical Society Archives (1966), Trinity Museum (1967), Green Family Forge (1991), the Court House, Gaol and General Building (1996), Lester-Garland House (1997) and Cooperage (2007) and oversees the operation of the Fort Point Lighthouse Interpretation Centre.
