Rebuild Blackthorne Forge

In late March, Blackthorne Forge, run by Steven Bronstein, burned to the ground in a freak accident. The Forge has been a community centerpiece for over 25 years.  In order to rebuild and keep the business serving the Marshfield community, Steven needs to start from the ground up.  Expenses include a new structure and almost all new equipment.  While he is partially insured, there are many costs beyond what his insurance will cover.  Steven has been overwhelmed and touched by the outpouring of community support, but we wanted to create a more organized platform for friends and community members looking for a way to help keep Steve and Blackthorne Forge in Marshfield.

Your support is much appreciated.
