A substantial stone structure, used as a military post and as a refuge for settlers against attack, was nearby on the north bank of Coplay Creek. It was built in 1760 by Adam Deshler, a native of Switzerland. Remaining in his family for several generations, the building was owned by the Coplay Cement Company after 1899 and stood until about 1940.
