Title

Richard Reid, Blacksmithing & Farming Implements

Description

Number 23 on the Burleigh map, the blacksmith shop of Richard Reid (1860-1930) was an important source for the specialized implements of agriculture--both their forging and repair. Reid was born in Canada, then moved to America at age twenty and learned his trade in Batavia, NY. He moved to Caledonia and ran a business there until closing shop in 1920. At the time of his death, aged 69, he still was blacksmithing in the village of Linwood, NY. Reid was a member of Caledonia's Eunice Lodge of the Free & Accepted Masons.
