The blacksmith shop is located on the original grounds of Fort Crook (now Offutt Air Force Base) outside the boundaries of the Fort Crook Historic District (see separate summary). Completed in 1893, the one-story brick building was designed as a regimental blacksmith, tinsmith, plumber, paint, carpenter, and wheelwright shop. In following years the building served various purposes including headquarters for the Seventh Army Corps and Civilian Conservation Corps, and later as a library and cultural center.
