These antique (pre-1899) guns have a special significance in Harmony. From about 1850 until his 1897 death, Harmony resident Charles Flowers produced fine percussion hunting and target rifles in a shop two blocks from todays’ Museum (just off Wood St.). More than 100 rifles made by Charles Flowers are known to exist, with a dozen of them in the current museum collection.
Even if you are not a gun collector or are all that interested in firearms, you’ll enjoy seeing the impressive craftsmanship and learning about this interesting part of western Pennsylvania history.
