Antietam Iron Works hand forges custom wrought iron railings, fences, balconies, and gates in the Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington, DC metro area. We are a small, family-owned business, which we started in 1982. We use a combination of traditional and modern techniques to create each piece, one at a time, hand detailed and often hand finished.
