William Vietor, Master Gunsmith

William Vietor was a farmer from Reelsville, and a muzzle loading rifle enthusiast. As a hobbyist, Mr. Vietor enjoyed shooting and collecting rifles, and was also well-known for making his own.


In this new exhibit, you can view pieces of Mr. Vietors collection. Various muzzle-loading gun paraphernalia, including items made by Mr. Vietor and those under his direction, have been arranged to give a taste of his specialty.
