Marker Name: B18 - Pierson Blacksmith Shop
Marker Text: Although Pete Pierson was the original blacksmith, he soon sold his business to Joe Egg, who ran the business for fifty years. As late as 1973, Egg was well-known in Bend and Redmond as an ace blacksmith. In that year, Egg told The Bulletin that although his business was fast becoming outdated by acetylene torches and electrical welding, he could still fix almost anything, and still shod horses. This building is the finest example of an early blacksmith shop lift in the country.
