Additional Details:
The Block House, all that remains of the original Fort Pitt building in 1759, stands as the last reminder of those stirring days between 1753 and 1758 when French, Indian, British, and Colonial Troops struggled for possession of this prized region. The name as suggested by Washington in honor of William Pitt.
