The Henry Haus Blacksmith and Wagonmaker Shop

Henry Haus, a native of Switzerland, came to Pope Valley in 1889 at the age of 16. He opened his blacksmith shop in the adjacent wooden structure in 1897, caring for the needs of this valley until 1950.

In 1899 he married Regula Anna and they raised four sons: Herman H., Ernest U., Henry, Jr., and George H. He helped to organize the Pope Valley Farm Center, and as with his smithing, gave it his continuous attention during his lifetime. He died December 8, 1955.
