Tinsmith Museum & Craft Shop

The Museum

Come and be immersed into history as you take a stroll through an early 1900s family home and business. Inside the Museum you will be thrust back in time as you walk into The Watson Smith & Son’s Hardware Store displayed much as it was in the early to mid-1900s.

  • The Craft shop – a little description Local Crafters have turned part of the main floor residents into a retail shop showcasing handmade crafts.
  • The Team

This facility is kept alive and vibrant by a wonderful group of Volunteers that are passionate about the History and Heritage of the Village
