Erected 1951
Moroni Fort and Bastion
Erected in 1865 on order of General D. H. Wells
to protect the settlers during the Black
Hawk War. The fort covered the present City
Hall Block and westward with 12 ft. rock
walls supporting cabins along the inside. The
bastion stood on the Lincoln School Lots. Its
walls 3 x 16 ft. held port holes which gave
a view of the entire valley. In 1866, when
near-by settlers were ordered to move into
the fort, Fountain Green occupied the N.E.
section; Wales, the West side; and Moroni,
the remainder.
