The Blacksmith Forge is a demonstration structure on the grounds of the Sam Houston Memorial Museum Complex.

Building inventory documents from the 1990s identify the structure simply as the Blacksmith Shop [1]. In the 2000s the building was first identified as "Joshua’s Blacksmith Forge" – named for Joshua Houston although it is a contemporary replica.
