Nevada City, Montana - June Russell-Chamberlin

Fire station and blacksmith shop (exterior)

Homes and businesses dating from the 1860s to early 1900 line the streets of the Nevada City Museum. The Basin Fire Station houses a collection of vintage fire equipment. In the days of horse and carriages, every town had at least one blacksmith shop. This one belonged to Smoky Eberl, a blacksmith in Augusta, Montana.
