The hundreds of hand wrought metal items found at this site indicates that a blacksmith shop existed here in the 1800's.

Among the items found were parts of wagon wheels, cooking utensils, muskets, nails, scissors, grading tools, hammers, door latches, locks[,] cow bells, chains, and hundreds of unidentified pieces.

An unfinished horse shoe probably indicated that the site was abandoned abruptly.
