Franklin county town celebrates its 250th anniversary

Franklin County

Shelburne continued its anniversary celebration with a blacksmithing and woodworking display at the First Congregational Church early Saturday afternoon.

The demonstration gave residents an idea of the crafts and skills that were used hundreds of years ago.

A resident from a neighboring town told 22News this event served as a great alternative weekend plan.

“We live pretty close so this was something that we could come out and do today even though it’s raining. Some of the things are inside. We were really interested in the blacksmithing today,” said Melanie Thorpe of Millers Falls.

Shelburne community festivities will continue all weekend long. The first public display of fireworks will be in the evening beginning at 9:30 p.m. Saturday night, pending the weather.
