On this property in 1812 was the trading post of John Anderson, famed Scottish pioneer of the River Raisin.

Anderson, Colonel of the Militia in 1812, was taken prisoner at Detroit, later escaped.

Mrs. Anderson, alone at the time of the River Raisin massacre, successfully defied frenzied Indians who invaded the premises and lapped from the basement floor whiskey which she had emptied from the barrels. Mrs. Anderson sat defiantly upon the family money chest as the savages threatened her with upraised tomahawks. "Shame, so many Indians fight one squaw," Mrs. Anderson cried. Cowed by her words the Indians left and the home was not further molested.
