1. Blacksmith Shop Marker
Inscription. Our blacksmith shop was a small building ... with... a dirt floor. The forge and anvil, drill press, and emery wheel were used daily to repair farm tools and sometimes to make them. Our horses and mules were shod there, and our plow points sharpened. A few of us did this work routinely, but Daddy handled the more difficult jobs.
