Colonel James Wilson erected a blockhouse near this point, which served as a refuge for the early settlers of Derry Township. It was equipped with heavy wooden doors, fortified window coverings, and rifle holes on every side. The blockhouse was strongly built to withstand a long siege from the Indians, where a small group of six to eight men could easily defend themselves from twice their number of attackers.
