This station was built in 1790 near Bledsoe Creek by Joseph Ziegler to protect early settlers. In 1791, it was attacked by a war party of Creek, Cherokee, and Chickamauga Indians, killing ten persons and taking eighteen prisoners. A forced march was made to Chattanooga being unsuccessfully pursued by Gen. James Winchester and local militia. All prisoners were later ransomed by Gen. James White, founder of Knoxville, and brother of a captive, Sarah White Wilson.
