Magruder's Blacksmith Shop

At the corner of River Road and Seven Locks Road you see a privately owned rubble stone cottage, one of the oldest standing structures in Montgomery County.

Originally built by Ninian Magruder before 1751 as the Magruder’s Blacksmith Shop, it played a key role in colonial trade as barrels of tobacco were rolled and goods carried along River Road to Georgetown. The smithy served travelers, farmers, and merchants with shoeing horses, repairing wagons, and creation of ironworks critical to farming and life of the period.
