SWAGGERTY FORT

Stop #11 on the Heritage Tour.  In 1787 James Swaggerty built this cantilevered structure over a stream for protection from hostile Indians.  But the Native Americans dammed up the stream thus stopping the flow of water.  This is the only block house left in this area. Stop by the Chamber office for a Heritage Tour brochure.
