The Blacksmith -
Carpenter's Shop

Located next to the main gate, this building served as the carpenter and blacksmith shop.  The horses and oxen continually required re-shoeing.  Wagon wheels were often broken on the trips to the mountain or to the prairie around the Fort and would need repairs.  Most of the furnishings for the Fort were constructed in this building.
