1850s Blacksmith Shop
This single-storey, cedar log structure was built in 1972, using logs from a small barn found in Derby Township, Grey County.
In 1967, the George Rice family made a generous donation of blacksmithing equipment to the County of Grey-Owen Sound Museum. Museum staff and volunteers constructed this shop, along with a replica forge, as a demonstration building for these and other donated items.
The building was moved to Moreston Heritage Village in early 2006, and another replica forge was built into it that year. It is positioned near the museum's Log Cabin and is interpreted as an 1850s blacksmith shop.
