Located on the shore of the lake, this historic site is a short easy walk from the parking area. It is a quiet uncluttered place which frees the brain to imagine what life was like centuries ago when this fortification was built to promote peace between European settlers and the resident Native American people. I left with questions such as why they had 3 wells in such a small space. This is a good place to visit if you are looking for intrigue and fresh air.

What do I say about the blockhouse, well it doesn't take long to experience it. While I know it is a part of history, I believe you have to be a serious history buff to enjoy this. Its just a bounch of remnants of old buildings and some signage. I'm sure it is important in its own right however, honestly it's quite boring. Not a place I would bring my children to.

Across the lake from Fort Loudon. Short drive and even shorter walk but is worth it to see for a few mins. It helps tie in the Fort Loudn story

Fantastic! If you want a view, you got it. If you want history, you got it. If you want to walk where your Cherokee ancestors walked - you got it!
Drawings of the blockhouse allow you to walk through history where ancestors and neighbors walked, played, drilled, lived, and conducted business. The information boards, if you take the time to read them, allow you to walk through the foundations and picture what was happening and get a true sense for the size of the rooms and the harsh conditions of that time period. Loved it - especially knowing my ancestors traded here and were involved in some of the 'situations' between the Cherokees and British at this location and across the bay.
Folks read your history before visiting, it will bring the place alive!
This is part of the Fort Loudoun historical site and is kept clean and maintained as well as any foundation remains can be kept. It is not a reconstruction like the fort, but actual remains. This location is Post Revolutionary War and Pre-War of 1812. Read the history find out what was happening it will bring the place to life - this is a major precursor to the Trail of Tears. You got Cherokee blood line? Come visit!

This was truly a wonderful experience, don't understand why the rest of these reviewers are giving it a bad rep!It has been greatly improved, and is meant to be a simple location that shows where it was, kind of as a land marker. Interesting stop, pairs good with Fort Loudoun Sate Historical Area.

There really isn't much to see here. Just an outline of the blockhouse. It's okay, but if you miss it do be disappointed. It is across the water from Ft. Loudon State Park.

As another review said "Not much to see", this may be true if you do not try to learn at least a small amount of history about this spot. Completed in 1794, the blockhouse operated until 1807 with the purpose of keeping the peace between nearby Cherokee towns and early Euro-American settlers in the area in the wake of the Cherokee–American wars. The Tellico Blockhouse was the site where several treaties were negotiated in which the Cherokee were induced to cede large portions of land in Tennessee and Georgia. During this period, the blockhouse was the site of official liaisons between the United States government and the Cherokee Indians. If you take the time to read, and learn the history, you will appreciate what you see a little more.

No guides, no visitors center, not enough signage. Beautiful peaceful area, worth a quick stop if in the area, but don't go out of your way for it.

The site contains the excavated remains of the Tellico Blockhouse. It was built in the late 1700's and served as a re-education facility for the Cherokee Nation. It was the plan of the U.S. government to have the Cherokee live like the white man. As a trading post, the Tellico Blockhouse offered trade items for hides. Furs and hides were the primary currency that the Cherokee could barter with. Through years of such trade the fur-bearing animals of the region were decimated. This trade had an economic and environmental impact on the area. The Tellico Factory offered a solution when spinning wheels, cotton seed, looms, and training were brought to the Cherokee at the Tellico Blockhouse. Much of the Little Tennessee River Valley was planted in cotton. This new commodity took some of the stress off of fur bearing animals and provided the Cherokee with a valued item of trade. From this location you can look across the lake and see Fort Loudon.
