Historic Knight Foundry's Guided Tours – 2nd Saturday of the Month

Set in the heart of Sutter Creek, Knight Foundry – America’s last water-powered foundry and machine shop and a premier relic of Mother Lode gold mining history – will open its doors to the public. The guided tours of Sutter Creek’s historic Knight Foundry take place on the 2nd Saturday of every month at 10 a.m., 12 noon, and 2 p.m. Visitors will be able to tour the Foundry floor, which looks much the same as the day the Foundry ceased operations in 1996, after being in business continually since 1873. On hand will be local historians and former Foundry employees who can talk about what it was like when the fires were going and the liquid iron was sizzling into the huge molds.
