Cooper and Broom Maker

Biographical Text

Family history inspired Darold Francis to begin coopering. His great, great-grandfather, John Francis, was born in Bristol, Gloucester, England in 1813. He was a cooper (barrel maker) by trade, as was his father before him, and he continued the trade after immigrating to America. Picking up a love of woodworking and building as a young man, Darold decided to direct his own skills towards reviving this Francis family tradition. He and his wife Pam demonstrate traditional Pioneer skills at many festivals across the state.
