Archaeological View Of Fort Stephenson

Describing Fort Stephenson, James Kirk said "Mark off a square plat of ground containing half an acre with a block house on the northeast corner and one in the northwest corner, this was the original fort."
In June 1813 when we came here the fort was found to be too small. He said mark off another square on the west side of the old square and this you will see will place the northwest blockhouse in the center of the north line of the enlarged fort.
There was a scaled log house in the new part filled with biscuit for Perry's fleet.
