Roscoe has a long history with blacksmithing, but not always at this location. Originally consisting of a two-story center section with a one-story south wing, our smithy was constructed c.1890 as a stable. In 1905, the original south wing was demolished and a new one built by 1912. C.1925 the building was home to an automobile garage. The north wing was added by 1930. A local blacksmith, Cleon "Tinker" Dobson had his shop in this building from 1932 to his retirement in the early 1970s. The building was renovated by Roscoe Village Foundation in 1978.
