View of Revolutionary War Patriot graves at Peru Blockhouse Cemetery

Description

Capt. Isaac Finch purchased this land and built the Peru Blockhouse with his sons John, Justice and James in 1792. The blockhouse was never used for refuge from Indian attacks but as an early courthouse, meeting place of the First Baptist Church of Christ of Peru, and a small-pox hospital.
