Vellnagel’s Blacksmith was built in c1897. German migrant August Vellnagel established his blacksmith shop from this site, but in 1921, the family were forced to move the building across the road and relocate their business to make way for the new WWI commemorative of Marchant Park. Vellnagels closed in 2006 but their shops remain a Gympie Road landmark.
