Special Notice about Forged in Iron and Bone Program and Reception


Dear members and friends of The Catoctin Furnace Historical Society,

We were very much looking forward to sharing the results of our research with you and unveiling the faces of the enslaved during our Forged In Iron and Bone event originally scheduled for March 14, then rescheduled for May.  After much consideration and based on the rapidly evolving situation surrounding the spread of COVID-19, we feel it is safest and most prudent to postpone the event again.

We are hoping you will be able to join us Wednesday, August 19, 2020 from 6-9 pm at The Delaplaine Arts Center for the rescheduled program. Your admission fee will be applied to the new event.  If you cannot join us on Wednesday, August 19, you may donate your admission to someone of your choice. Just let us know the new name. Or, you can allow us to provide the ticket to someone who could not afford a ticket. Your ticket price will then be considered a donation to the historical society and you will receive a receipt for the cost.

If you wish to receive a refund, please contact Elizabeth Comer at 443-463-6437 or

Thank you for your support and understanding.  It is very much appreciated.
