Sudden Indian attacks at Seattle and Bellingham in 1855 caused consternation among the small pioneering settlements on Puget Sound. The tradition of blockhouse defense was well known to American settlers, dating from the earliest English colonies. Several Island families built blockhouses, none of which saw any fighting. Colonel Walter Crockett was responsible for this one completed in 1857. Blockhouses on Whidbey Island remained well preserved over the years, cherished as heirlooms by the desendents of the founding families.
