businesses, monuments, and institutions have in common?
The answer is G. Krug & Son. The blacksmith shop located at 415 West Saratoga Street in Baltimore has been supplying high-quality iron and metal products since 1810. Started by a German immigrant, Augustus Schwatka and carried forward by Gustav Krug who immigrated from Germany in 1850. The little shop expanded to a near monopoly on the iron and metalworkers’ market in Baltimore forging ornamental fences, gates, railings, fire escapes, cresting, doors, animal cages, and locks throughout the end of the 19th and 20th century.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places the Krug Complex consists of a two-story tall gable-roofed building dating from the first quarter of the 19th century, that houses the earliest shop; a four-story tall Victorian building which houses a business office, museum, and storage rooms on the upper floors; and a three-story tall shed-roofed addition dating from 1870 to 1880. Beginning in 1810 G. Krug & Son is recognized as the oldest continuously operating blacksmith shop in the United States. It remains a fifth-generation family business that is still going strong.
