Beeler, who will be a junior at Central Career and Technical School this fall, is leading family members and fellow Scouts from his troop to repaint parts of the interior of the building's walls and to install a metal bench that Beeler welded. The two-story blockhouse was built July 31, 1879 on the former site of Fort Presque Isle, where the Soldiers' & Sailors' Home exists today. The structure is named in memory of Gen. "Mad" Anthony Wayne, a Pennsylvania native, Revolutionary War figure and U.S. Congressman from Georgia who died in 1796 at the site's original blockhouse. The current blockhouse replaced the one at which he died, which had burned down in 1852. Photos by Andy Colwell/Erie Times-News
