The blacksmith shop was found by Hoyt Herrin encased in an old frame house on the Travis Moore homeplace adjacent to the campus of the former Gainesville College (now the University of North Georgia Gainesville campus).  It was dismantled and reassembled at Hoyt's home.  James Mathis, Sr. had the shop moved to our location to serve as a memorial to Hoyt Herrin and to become a part of our mission of preserving and sharing the history of our unique region.
