Blacksmith Shop

While taking down a very old and dead tree, Jake and Wendy have unearthed the foundation of Thomas’ original Blacksmith shop.   Along w/ the stone foundation they have found innumerable artifacts.  This “dig” will continue for weeks to come as these treasures are carefully excavated, cleaned and documented by Wendy, our Family Historian.
