Blockhouse Cheese (Cheddar)
Cheddar Cheese - Historic Fort Steuben - Blockhouse Cheese
Historic Fort Steuben was built in 1786 by the First American Regiment for the protection of surveyors who had been sent by the Continental Congress to map the Northwest Territory. At this time the Native Americans in the area were hostile.
The site was selected as most desirable for a military defense since it was bounded on the east by the Ohio River and lay on a slope of land that was uniform and drained toward the river with hills to the west which formed a natural amphitheater around the perimeter. It was on this site that Captain John Francis Hamtramck of the First American Regiment built a small blockhouse for the protection of his provisions while he and his men constructed the fort.
By February 1787, Hamtramck and his men had completed construction of the fort and named it after Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben, a Prussian army officer who had ably assisted General Washington in the Revolutionary War. The town that subsequently developed on the site still carries his name.
Two hundred years later, the non-profit Old Fort Steuben Project, Inc. was formed to reproduce the fort on its original site and to offer historical and educational programs.
