The Copake Iron Works Museum

The Copake Iron Works Museum, located in Copake, NY, once sustained a booming charcoal production business. To commemorate the local men behind the trade, the Sheffield Historical Society asked us to design an exhibit showcasing the lives and processes of Mount Washington colliers. With three custom-fit panels, we portrayed a gritty, dusty history against a vibrant, modern backdrop.  The end result was an engaging educational environment that gave visitors an appreciation for the art of dirty work.
