VISITING KNIGHT FOUNDRY
The Knight Foundry is not
currently open to the public during escrow.
Visitors to Sutter Creek can look at the exteriors of these remarkable
buildings, peer through the windows, and look forward to what it will
like when the Foundry is reopened. Your contribution will help us close
escrow and resume tours, workshops and historic cast iron production.
Keep an eye on our website, too. We hope to be able to re-open later in
