About Warwick's Fort
William Warwick's Fort Site is located on Deer Creek in Green Bank, in Pocahontas County, West Virginia. It was a militia fort built in 1774, by George Moffatts' and George Matthews' companies. The Warwick house was nearby but not at the fort site.
During February and March, we tap the maple trees on our farm and use the traditional open pan method to boil the sap and reduce it into maple syrup. It takes 35-40 gallons of tree sap to make one gallon of syrup. Family and friends gather around the wood-fired sugar arch to savor the sweet aroma of evaporating sap. Gathering the ever filling buckets and feeding the fire elicit strong memories of previous sugar seasons and the people we shared them with.
