    Amazing stuff. Thank you for educating us. Sadly, the lodge demolition was a stupid idea. How awesome it would be to still have it today.

    As a 10-13 year old in the early 1950’s, I would walk from Terrace Village where I lived to the Triangle to visit the blockhouse. I remember the first time not being sure I was at the right place because the house made the blockhouse look like a storage shed. I figured it out and made many visits to the blockhouse; even going in it when it was open as a small shop. These visits fueled an interest in colonial American history, specifically the time of the French and Indian War, to this date.

    Mollie Beck was my great-grandfather’s (James Buchanan) 2nd wife. They were married in 1919 and he died in 1920. She was born in Switzerland – not Scotland. She died July 4, 1946 – not July 6 1946. I have a copy of her death certificate which also states that she was born in Switzerland – signed by her son, Frank McClelland.
