Description During the early and middle 1700`s the construction of forts all along the old mine road (Route 209) was necessary to protect the settlers from hostile Indians. There were three forts built in Mamakating. Fort Westbrookville was built in 1750 on what is now the Sullivan and Orange county border and until several years ago it was a restaurant. This was a settlers' fort or blockhouse built by Tjerck Van Keuren, and still stands today in Westbrookville. Photographed in Westbrookville, New York.
