Bledsoe’s Fort Historical Park

About Bledsoe’s Fort Historical Park

Bledsoe's Fort Historical Park is an 80-acre park that features the outline of buildings that were part of the original Bledsoe Fort dating to the 1780s. Also at the park are several historic buildings including Rogan's Cottage, an Irish-style stone-cottage built by Irish immigrant Hugh Rogan in the 1790s, two log cabins, and a historic cemetery. A hiking path passes the historic cemetery and loops around the edge of the park. There is a short offshoot on the trail that leads to remnants of an old springhouse. Several informational markers are along the trail as well as throughout the park.
