Survey number HABS WI-338
Significance: The Schulz Blacksmith Shop is a representative example of a blacksmith shop, an important precursor to industrial development in late nineteenth and early twentieth century America. Large-scale metal processing and fabrication industries, important components of eastern Wisconsin's economic development, had their roots in cottage industries such as the local blacksmith shop. The blacksmith served many functions in most communities, including shoeing horses, repairing iron tools, and wagon-making.
