Blacksmith Shop

Located south of the Rock Ledge House, is the 1890s Blacksmith Shop. During this time in history, blacksmiths spent most of their time repairing commercially manufactured tools and implements.

You may see an apprentice hard at work with the master blacksmith. Apprentices typically lived with the family and the only compensation they received was room and board, but most importantly an invaluable education in a trade. You may also see the journeyman blacksmith honing his skills at the forge. The journeyman blacksmith would travel or journey to the shops of master smiths were he would perfect his trade under their guidance, thus giving him the name journeyman.

Please stop by the General Store and purchase an item hand-forged here at the Ranch.
