FireHouse Ironworks was established in 2011 by Grant Haverstock.
Haverstock purchased the former fire station in Whycocomagh, Nova Scotia and transformed the building into a modern blacksmith studio. Today, FireHouse Ironworks is home to 3 coal fired forges and a modern metal working shop, as well as a gift shop/showroom and office. On any given day at the FireHouse, work on custom commission projects will be underway, blacksmith training workshops may be in process, or community events taking place.
FireHouse Ironworks is also the home of the Cape Breton Blacksmiths Association, a non-profit organization of 45+ local blacksmiths. Haverstock is the current president of the volunteer based non-profit association that seeks to promote the craft of blacksmithing through public education and demonstration.
