Salina Fort & Tithing Office
Work on the Fort began in 1865. The Fort
was 214 feet square, on ground purchased
from Christian Sorenson. The walls were 10
feet high, and two feet thick with bastions 10
feet square at the four corners with port
holes in walls and bastions. Inside of the
Fort a one room brick building erected by
Jens Jensen, was used for many years as
tithing office, and is now the Relic Hall
of Old Fort Camp. The enclosure was
large enough to shelter all families.

Stone used was taken from the old
quarry northeast of Salina.
