Village Smith

We're posting them at the rate on one a day. That makes this blog no. 15 for December ...

Once a common sight in America, technological advances have bypassed the blacksmith shop. The blacksmith repaired and manufactured most everything made from metal. Tools for miners, loggers and farmers were everyday products for the town smith. Unlike the shop at Coloma State Historic Park, the blacksmith shop located at the El Dorado County Historical Museum serves as a static exhibit today.
