Description of Geist Blacksmith Shop in oil

This is the John Geist & Son’s Forges on 311 Jefferson St. in Nashville TN.
From murfreesboropost.com,
“Geist Blacksmith Shop and Residences, Nashville, Davidson County. John Geist & Sons was a key part of Nashville’s historic Germantown community, and when the company closed its doors two years ago, was Nashville’s oldest operating business. The stone shop and accompaning residence are rare surviving original Victorian buildings on Nashville’s bustling Jefferson Street and are suffering from neglect. The chief threat is demolition, as the land has incredible value for future development.”
