Knight Foundry 2023 Public Tour Schedule
Haven’t visited Sutter Creek’s historic Knight Foundry since before the pandemic? Or ever? Maybe this will be your year – it’s the Foundry’s 150th! Samuel Knight invented a new kind of water wheel and in 1873, turned it into a business with his name on it. Today America’s last water-powered foundry is being transformed into an interactive industrial heritage museum and educational facility. You’re invited!
