Nicholas Hawk Gun Shop

The nineteenth-century gunshop of Nicholas Hawk (1782-1844), one of the most talented makers of Pennsylvania longrifles. sat on the Hawk property in Gilbert, Monroe County, just across the Blue Mountains from the Henry gunworks at Boulton. When the structure was threatened with demolition in 2003, volunteers from Jacobsburg Historical Society dismantled the old gunshop, timber by timber, and transported it to Boulton. Reassembly and restoration was completed here in 2008.
