Blacksmith's shop

Frederick County, Virginia 

Among the most skilled and important workers on Belle Grove Plantation, the blacksmith not only shod horses, but fabricated and repaired the various tools and implements needed to work the farm. The shop at Belle Grove is housed in an open-sided shed adjacent to the smokehouse.

Read more about the history of the plantation at the Belle Grove Plantation website.

Enjoy the weekend, and thanks for reading Photography In Place.
