Rose Blacksmith Shop

Dates From: circa 1856
Original Location: Nobleton, Ontario

In an early pioneer community, the blacksmith was considered one of the most essential tradesmen. His role: to fashion tools for himself and for other craftsmen.

This simple building, consisting of a timber frame structure with board and batten finish, also contains a brick forge and anvil. It features the various tools used to make and repair carriages, wheels and various other agricultural implements.

The building was moved to Black Creek Pioneer Village in 1958 and opened two years later.
