Knight Foundry Alliance

Sutter Creek’s Historic Industrial Crown Jewel. Knight Foundry, set in the heart of Sutter Creek, is America’s last water-powered foundry and machine shop. Established in 1873 by Samuel Knight, this extraordinary facility welcomes the public on the second Saturday of every month year-round for self-guided tours. Marvel at the historic equipment and machinery, watch expert docents pouring hot metal, demonstrating blacksmithing and tinsmithing, and much more. Private group tours are available by appointment.
