Knight Foundry…Preserving Our History

Knight Foundry…Preserving Our History

The Knight Foundry, set in the heart of Sutter Creek, is America’s last water-powered foundry and machine shop. This historic facility includes the original equipment and machinery, still in place as it was during its gold rush-era heyday. The land and buildings of the Knight Foundry complex have been donated to the City of Sutter Creek, but the Knight Foundry Alliance needs your help to purchase the artifacts….
