When I joined the Pittsburgh Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution I was so excited to learn of their ownership of the Fort Pitt Block House. To hear the history of those brave, intelligent women who struggled to protect and preserve such a vital part of Pittsburgh history in a time when women had little or no voice in the world is truly awe inspiring. And what an important part of Pittsburgh and the nation's history they saved. Few realize that the tiny building is the oldest west of the Alleghenies. It was built in 1764, before the American Revolution, as a redoubt of Fort Pitt and was the gateway to the west in those times. It is of utmost importance to preserve this little jewel in the heart of beautiful Point State Park for years and years to come.
