Over 100 years ago, the village side of the Vizcaya estate was bustling with farm work, construction, and blacksmithing. While technology has changed drastically since then, you can find the craft of blacksmithing still being practiced today at The Guild in Pompano Beach. Their workshop space allows community members to participate in the historic trade.
