Ca. 1800 · Shelburne, Vermont
—Moved to Museum: 1956 —In the 18th and 19th centuries communities depended heavily on the village blacksmith as the primary source for tools, utensils, hardware, vehicle parts, and many other items. Many blacksmiths also served as farriers, manufacturing and fitting shoes for horses and oxen. In the 20th century, blacksmithing shifted from manufacturing to repair of factory-produced goods.
