The Fort Brewerton site offers the Blockhouse Museum on the grounds of what was once a 17th-century fort, placed on a land bounty of Barent I. Staats. In 1788, Oliver Stevens, the first white man to settle in the Brewerton area, arrived from Canaan Connecticut, and leased land from Staats, building a house large enough for his wife and three children. The family took in trading merchandise in order to accommodate travelers in the area. In 1794, Stevens was granted permission to build a blockhouse for protection against Indian attacks. The blockhouse eventually became a barn, then a cider mill until Fort Brewerton Inn was constructed. At that time, Stevens used the blockhouse as a tavern, trading furs with native Americans and serving the travelers who used the lake for transport. The blockhouse has been restored and the original earthworks of the fort are still visible. The site is located at 9 US Route 11 in Brewerton, about half an hour from Oneida Lake.
