STOCKADE — The metal stakes, driven into discolorations in the soil where pestholes once were, form two long lines in the background. This is believed to be the stockade built by Susquehannock Indians at about 1550 A.D. to protect the village located on a hilltop near Pine. The wide discoloration immediately in front of the first row of stakes is the ditch where the Indians dumped their refuse. The circular pattern of stakes was a "round house" built in an earlier Indian settlement about 1400 A.D. (Express Photo)
