Blacksmith Shop c. 1899

The blacksmith provided one of the most important services in the community. He was able to make or repair nearly everything that was made of iron. While many blacksmith shops were larger, this replica shop is typical of the smaller, one-man smiths found on farms. Demonstrations are performed at the BNHV by members of the New York State Designer Blacksmith organization.
