Jim,
That blacksmith shop is still there. It was called Fred Hutt, but a young gentleman bought the business years ago and changed the name to Falls City Iron Works. About ten years ago we had new valve stems made for the engines, and we needed someone to rivet the caps holding the valve stems on the top of the valve. At that time I remembered this young man because he was a friend of my next door neighbor. We took all of the valves to his shop, and he gladly riveted the caps. He keeps much of the shop in the look of a traditional blacksmith shop with the furnace and bellows, hoping to entice schools to visit to show students his craft.
