Philipsburg Blockhouse: Picture from early 1900's of what appears to be an original
structure claimed located at the foot of Lake Champlain. No maps show location, may be
after Philip Skene or another name for Skenesboro (as Skene had sided with the British,
Skenesboro may also have been known as Philipsburg before being named Whitehall).
A blockhouse is mentioned as being constructed within the old fort at Skenesboro in 1812 which could be this one.
