The Blacksmith Cottage is located at 100 Main Street, Bacchus Marsh. It is heritage listed and is on the National Estate list and has National Trust classification.  It is the only publicly owned heritage site in Bacchus Marsh.

It was purchased from the Edwards family in 1974 by the Bacchus Marsh (now Moorabool) Shire.  In 1979, the cottage was opened as a small cottage museum by Professor Geoffrey Blainey. In 1992 the Blacksmith Cottage and Forge Special Committee was set up as a Section 86 Committee of Council. This Committee now has the responsibility for all operational details.
