HistoryWheat Ridge native George Hively established his thriving blacksmith shop here in 1913. Hively had a jolly, outgoing personality and was active in many community activities. He had lost an eye from a forge accident. Hively was Wheat Ridge's first fire chief and this structure housed the first Wheat Ridge Volunteer Fire Department truck.
