Major Moot house has Just returned
from a visit to Ccntralla. Wash.,
where he went for the purpose of
photographing an old blockhouse,
built in the Indian wars ot 1SS6 for
defense against the warring tribes of
The old house Is located on the
Olymplo-Grays Harbor stage road,
one of the oldest main roads In the
Northwest. Is about two miles from
Centralta nnd Is known as Fort Borst.
It Is built of huge fir logs and Is
two stories high, provided with port
holes In both stories nnd was a for
midable defense against the weapons
used by the Indians In the early
This is the only two-story house
among the blockhouses of the North
west, all of which Major Moorhouse
has now secured photographs, except
ing one built by General Phil Sheri
dan on the Grand Ronde reservation.
In Lincoln county, Oregon.
There are four of these forts now
-standing in fair state of preservation.
One Is at Fort Simcoe. one nt Golden
dale, one nt Centralla and the last
on the Grand Ronde reservation.
Major Moorhouse Is making a spec
ialty of securing photographs and
data concerning these forts, for an
exhibit, or part of the historical ex
hibit at the Lewis and Clark fair.
He has secured complete historical
data covering the ones at Fort Sim
coe and Goldendale. and will return
to Centralla soon to collect data on
that one, and while absent in that
JSArt of the country will go to the
Grand Ronde reservation to secure
photographs of the house there.
The Fort Borst blockhouse Is now
used for a hog pen by a farmer, and
Is so near the river bank that unless)
it is removed win soon topple over
Into the river and be destroyed. As
these blockhouses comprise one of
the most thrilling features of North
west history. Major Moorhouse. with
thousands of other patriotic Western
ers, believes that their history should
be preserved and the houses them
selves taken as an exhibit to the
Lewis and Clark fair.
There were dozens of them hullt In
the Indian wars most of them have
fallen Into decay or have been destroyed.
