There is a living history museum, a California State Park, just north of Santa Barbara, that we frequent every so often. It is one of the 21 California missions established by the Spaniards in the late 1700s and early 1800s. A visit to Mission La Purisima is an enchanting adventure, back in time, which is enhanced by the regular events held on the grounds in which docents, in period costumes, perform the daily tasks one would have seen, back in 1820.
Besides the bread baking and tortilla grilling, there is soap and candle making, some working looms, and a bona fide blacksmith at work. From the Santa Maria Times there's an interesting slideshow, highlighting the work of, and person who is, the blacksmith - Moises Solis. Take the time to watch: I am a Blacksmith (by Ian Vorster).
