The Lacombe Blacksmith Shop is the oldest operating blacksmith shop in Alberta and was built in 1902. Here, Volunteer Blacksmiths keep the tradition alive by firing up the forge and handcrafting a variety of items by heating up iron in the forge and hammering the metal on the anvil. 

During the summer months, visitors get to see firsthand how traditional Blacksmiths worked in the shop. While you’re there pick up handmade souvenirs including cedar shingles custom branded by our blacksmiths with your name or home address!
