Just to the north of Cornelius' Garage, Adolph Mundt built a blacksmith shop in 1919. It was a two story building, with the blacksmith on the first floor and paint shop on the second floor, where logging sleighs and wagons were painted. This building was not burned in the fire of 1920. Other owners were: Allshech, Steve Konik and Bauernfeind. This building was eventually torn down and is now a parking lot for Bowen Hardware.

Another blacksmith shop in Curtiss was the one east of the bank, operated by Louis Schroeder and later Morris Klemetson. Mundts and Machletts also had blacksmith shops. A smithy was also located in front of what is now the Peter Johnson residence, operated by Louis Schroeder. Later, it was sold to L.A. Liberty, who had the International harvester Agency.
