Granby Road, Blacksmith Shop

Description

Picture of the blacksmith shop that was located at the south end of what is now the Village green. Was owned by Holcombs. Also visible is the Wilcox Hotel. The blacksmith shop was torn down before 1920. Wilcox Hotel was torn down in the 1960's. Steeple in the background is the Universalist Church (now gone) on Main Road (formerly Maple Street).

The blacksmith shop was recreated by Ted Wackerbarth and a team of volunteers for the 1976 Bicentennial celebration. Articles relating to the new structure appear here. The building was taken down years later. If you know when, or whether it was put up somewhere else, please use the Comments facility below.
