Vintage Point: A blacksmith shop on Grand River

Editor’s Note: Maria Taylor’s photo column, “Vintage Point,” shows scenes from Farmington’s past with photos of those same scenes today.

Around 1890, you could get your wagons repaired and horses reshod at the blacksmith shop on Grand River, just west of Farmington Road.
