About The Smithy Clay Studio

The Smithy Gallery is the oldest building in Cooperstown. It was built by the village founder, Judge William Cooper, in 1786 to serve as a blacksmith shop for the infant settlement. Its forges, anvil stands, bellows, tools, the smoke-shadows of horseshoes and other features remain. A second and third floor were added to house a carriage repair shop and what is now the oldest surviving Masonic Hall with original paint in New York State.
The Smithy Clay Studio lies adjacent to the gallery and holds year-round classes, workshops and community events. The Studio also partners with local organizations, such as the Otsego ARC and The Cooperstown Food Pantry, to serve our wonderful community!

As a general rule, our publishers are happy to accept non-profit events, but some publishers may have individual policies concerning for-profit events or events that compete with paying Town Planner sponsors. If you're uncertain about your event, please feel free to contact your local publisher to inquire about his or her policies prior to posting.

Remember too that we are a family friendly organization and reserve the right to reject any events that we deem inappropriate for our calendar or online media tools.

We want to bring the Town Planner to even more towns across America. If you or someone you know want to earn a good living while promoting local businesses and building hometown pride, please consider becoming a Town Planner publisher today!
