Wendell August Forge - 13 Miles
Wendell August Forge is America’s oldest and largest forge, producing hand-wrought ornamental metalware and elegant giftware in aluminum and other metals since 1923. The company was founded in Brockway, Pennsylvania by Wendell McMinn August, who, at age 38, was active in the coal industry. The original Grove City forge burned to the ground in March of 2010 and like a phoenix rising from the ashes, a new modern facility was constructed nearby. The new facility and flagship store opened in October of 2013.
Today Wendell August Forge maintains the same painstaking dedication to heritage and history…to artistry and craftsmanship…to quality American made products…that propelled Wendell August to first open his forge in 1923.
