If you're interested in history this is a good place for a quick visit. It is conveniently located. One only needs 30 - 45 minutes for a visit.

The local boy scouts (Troop 189) continue to do a great job maintaining this place. Definitely worth stopping by.

We walked to the blockhouse from our motel. The area and gift shop (very reasonable prices) are kept up by the state and a local boy scout troop.
