The Old block house stood on the bank of the River, west of the Van Swearingen Home. A pond of water about 1/8 mile in length and about 12 rods in width extended north and south, parallel with the River. At the lower end of the pond stood the block house, surrounded with the palisades. (Presumed to be about the spot on which the Wellsburg High School now (‘98 Middle School) stands).
