Black Smith Shop


blacksmith_2.jpg

In the early days, a very important person in the community was the village Blacksmith.He was the manufacturer of a thousand useful things for the home and barn.Everything from nails and hinges to farm tools and nail irons.The earliest blacksmith shop, that can be identified,was located on property known as the Levi Perkins farm.The shop was operated by Barnard Cole. There were also several other blacksmith shops in Windsor in the 1800's.It is an amazing thing to see a piece of iron turned into a plant hanger, kitchen tool, or even a ring for one of the bulls nose that happens to be at the fair! Its a "don't miss" show at the Windsor Fair! The Windsor Historical Blacksmith's don't feel that it is only a mans work! If you stop by to see Jan at work during the fair,you'll see what I mean! It's also not surprising if you see one of the blacksmiths in one of the other shops (tin shop, cooper shop, wood carving, etc.). They were a jack of all trades back then and they still are today!
