category : Other Attractions
The D. Picking Company is the only hand hammered copper kettle manufacturer remaining in the United States. Founded in 1874 this is the last of the Old Copper Shops still making its original product - Apperbutter Kettles - primarily by hand.  In this shop the original patterns are in use plus work is being accomplished on the original tree stump work benches. Experienced coppersmiths are at work; the blacksmith shapes the handles at the old forge.  Commercially it produces, in addition to Applebutter kettles, Candy and Caramel Corn Kettles, and Tympani.  Its Decorative line includes an assortment of Flat Bottom Kettles, Skillets, Wastebaskets, Coal Hods and Shovels, Preserve Kettles, Ladles, Skimmers and Scoops.  The copper shop is still operating in the original building erected in 1873.  A bit of America at its finest.
