Welcome



Welcome to the JACKSON BLACKSMITH SHOP website.

This is the offical web page of the historic Jackson Blacksmith Shop located in Goochland County, Virginia.

This blacksmith shop is still in working order and houses the original tools used by three generations of blacksmiths who started practicing the trade well before the Civil War.  The Shop is maintained and this blacksmithing tradition is continued by the family and friends of the same Jackson smiths who worked in the field for well over 100 years.
