Biography/HistoryThe Blacksmith Shop, was located In the Mechanic Arts Building (built in 1893-94), and located on the first floor. In 1899, funds were appropriated for a small addition to the Mechanic Arts Building. "The addition, 24x32 feet, was equipped with anvils, forges, tools, and a steam blower to give instruction in blacksmithing (Fifth Biennial Report, Board of Trustees, NDAC, 1900, p. 120, 121). In 1901 the need was great for a larger forge shop, so the old one was taken down and a new one erected. The new addition, 44x68 feet in size, contained 40 down draft Buffalo forges."
