​Collection Updates:
We are seeking vintage horse tack and blacksmith tools for the new blacksmith shop next to the Goshen Log Cabin at Cook Farm. We are also interested in aquiring several pieces of furniture for the log cabin, including a rope bed and an early 19th century blanket chest. Items with a Goshen connection are always preferred.
