Blacksmiths

Blacksmiths made many useful items for a business or for a household. They created cooking utensils, lifters, hinges, door pulls, decorative works of art for the inside and for the exterior decor of the home. Horseshoes, parts of the farm implements and more for the barn area and for a business such as shipbuilding blacksmiths were very much needed.
