      EVENT DETAILS
      The Wilderness Road Blockhouse

      The Blockhouse was built in the spring of 1775 on the North Fork of the Holston River by John Anderson. His fortified home became a landmark along the road west, the Wilderness Road, which was marked by Daniel Bonne and 30 ax men. Over the next thirty years, some 300,000 people passed Anderson's home on their journey through the Cumberland Gap and on into what would become the state of Kentucky, and further westward. Tour a replica of the Anderson Blockhouse as members of the Daniel Boone Wilderness Trail Association provide information about the history of the building and area. Discover who John Anderson was and why his home was important to the frontier. This is a free program open to everyone. No pets allowed inside of the Blockhouse.
