FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) -- There's something new coming to The Old Fort.

In late May, the blacksmith shop was so badly burned, organizers behind the historic Fort Wayne icon decided it had to be torn down.

Investigators were never able to determine the cause of the fire, but leaders say thanks to the community's outpouring of support, they've been able to rebuild.
