Description: 

The blacksmith's shop is across the street from the jail. At the beginning of the novel Chick is standing under the shed in front of it. The shop has been there for most of the town's history; the "heavy rosette-shaped" and "handwrought" hinges on the jail door were "hammered out over a hundred years ago" in it (53). On the day the novel begins it is "closed" (3), probably because it is Sunday morning; there is no indication that the shop is not still active during the rest of the week.
