61441 ea THE BLOCK HOUSE The marker of the old Block House is at the home of London Smith, one half mile east of the old Gate City road, about a mile across the Virginia line, beyond Wadlow's Gap. The Block House was built by john Anderson in the year 1776, the same year that Fort Patrick Henry was built. john Anderson married Rebecca Maxwell in l775, and he reared his family in this pioneer home, which remained in the Anderson family for more than a century. . All of the early travelers to Kentucky mention the Block House as one of the important stations between Virginia and the Kentucky frontier. lt was the last station where the traveler could contact civilization in journey- ing across the wilderness via Cumberland Gap. . Dr. W. A. Pusey, who is the best authority on the Wilderness Road, gives the following description: "The Wilderness Road proper began at the Block House. The roads from the north and south brought the traveler to this point. The Block House was the last station before Moccasin Gap or Big Moccasin Gap, the gate to the Indian country and about the same distance from the important western rendezvous of the Holston pioneers, Long Island in the south fork of the Holston River. lt was of course for these reasons that the early travelers to Kentucky were used to gather at the Block House in order to form parties for the trip into Kentucky."
