The Schofield House, also known as the Lanier-Schofield House, is an historic building located in the Madison Historic District of Madison, Indiana. Built in 1817, this Federal-style building was the first two-story brick house and the first tavern house in Madison. It was also here, on January 13, 1818, that the Grand Lodge of Indiana, the organization of Freemasons in Indiana, was founded. (text courtesy of Wikipedia)
This carefully designed all-wooden fort was built in 1815-1816 by Major John Whistler and his men to easily defend against a Native American attack with only 50 to 75 men. It was impossible to penetrate, but the rapid westward movement of the frontier caused Fort Wayne to be abandoned after only three years of use (decommissioned April 19, 1819).
