Idaho City in Boise County, Idaho — The American West (Mountains)
George Kettler's Blacksmith Shop
When Tom Adams died in 1975, the building was shut intact, and only occasionally shown to guests. In the late 1970's, when it began to structurally deteriorate, Mrs. Florence Adams commissioned San Aarons to reinforce the building using original posts and beam methods, ultimately saving the structure.
After remaining vacant for many years, it was sold and renovated for commercial use in 1990 as the Happy Burro Trad'n Post. It then became the Growling Bear:
Erected by Marshall Hopper and The Idaho Shootists.
