1. Hirsch Blacksmith Shop Marker
Inscription.  John Hirsch shaped metal in his shop in downtown Northville. His tools and hot forge were vital to the community - crafting nails, repairing farm equipment, making horseshoes. His shop operated from the mid-1800's until the 1920s, and it was reconstructed here guiding by historic photographs. It opened here in 1985 with a blacksmith forge on the right. An exhibit space is on the left.
