Camp Guardhouse
A log hut which was reconstructed about 1890 on the remains of a hut from 1778. The actual purpose of the original structure is in question, although local lore said it was the Guardhouse. The construction and size of the hut gives the visitor an approximation of one of the 116 enlisted men's huts inside the park. Each hut contained 12 soldiers.
