A blacksmith was very important in colonial times. For starters a blacksmith is a person who mostly worked with iron to make iron objects. Here are some of the objects that the blacksmith would make, hinges and latches. They would also make farm and household items. Last but not least, they made horse shoes. They would painfully shoe horses by nailing the shoe to the hooves. Blacksmiths were very skilled workers.
