Fodor's Review

During Galena's 19th century growth, the town boasted upwards of three dozen working blacksmiths who busied themselves making shoes for the region's many horses. While there are barely a handful now, you can peek back into that heyday history at this 1897 blacksmith shop, which hosts demonstrations of the authentic early 20th-century tools that are on display.
