Pointe BasseBuilt in 1831, Wakely's Tavern and Trading Post was the first white settler's house in present Wood County. River piers, shingle mill, warehouse, and gunpowder pit contributed to making this site a rendezvous for Indians, voyageurs, lumbermen and raftsmen, as well as a social center for area pioneers.
