Photo Description

This shop, built by Perly Monrow about 1900, is representative of the many blacksmith shops in Coloma during and after the gold rush period. An essential member of the community, the blacksmith repaired and manufactured almost everything made from metal, including small hardware, wagons, and tools for both miners and farmers.
