Village Blacksmith Garden Tools

Blacksmith Shop

Village Blacksmith 6

Bolton, Massachusetts, c. 1810
Moved to OSV, 1957

Blacksmith Moses Wilder owned land that adjoined a stone quarry operated by his wife’s cousins in Bolton, Massachusetts. Wilder built the Blacksmith Shop using some 400 granite stones from the quarry to form the walls. He was able to maintain a prosperous business making and repairing tools used in the neighboring quarry. His son, Abraham, later took over the business.

Neighborhood blacksmiths undertook several different kinds of work in rural New England, and most towns had several blacksmiths. Some specialized in producing edge tools or machinery. Others shoed horses or turned to wheelwrighting and repairing vehicles. Many did general work, repairing manufactured and imported tools, shoeing horses and oxen, and making many of the smaller items needed in the community.

Disadvantages of Raised Bed Gardening:
Cost: Raised beds cost more than gardens planted directly into the ground. You have to factor in the cost of lumber, nails, tools, and of course time and backbreaking labor.
Maintenance: Raised bed gardens aren't maintenance free. Over time, even the best lumber breaks down from the elements. Insect damaged, sun, wind and water will eventually crack and rot the lumber.
Chemicals: One solution to the weathering problem is to use pressure-treated lumber
