Blockhouse-Central Park NYC 1913

The Blockhouse is in the northern portion of the park. It was built in 1814 by New York City citizens for defense against the British who they thought were going to attack This is the only one of several that still survives. Originally it had a turet on the roof with a canon that could be fired in any direction. This photo was taken on March 28th, 1913 at 3 pm. The plaque above the door reads "This blockhouse was part of a line of fortifications extending from the Hudson to the Harlem River built for the defence of New York by it's patriotic citizens during the war of 1812-1815. This tablet is erected by the Woman's Auxiliary to the American Scenic and Historic Preservation Society A.D. 1905". The plaque has been lost to vandals but lives on in this photo.
