Built in 1902, the Blacksmith Shop Museum is the oldest operational Blacksmith Shop in Alberta today. It is still located on the original site. Much of the original machinery in the blacksmith shop is in operating condition.

The Blacksmith shop was often a hub of activity back when horses and carriages ruled the road. Come see how iron is bent and formed into shapes through intense heat and loud triphammers (cover your ears) and learn about the history and politics of blacksmithing in Lacombe.

Purchased by the Lacombe and District Historical Society in 1991, the blacksmith shop was restored as a museum.

The Lacombe Blacksmith Shop was designated as a Provincial Historic Resource by the Government of Alberta in 2011.
