The Old Fort

Near this spot February 7, 1854, twenty-five men organized in military order, began the construction of a small fort for protection from the Indians. The walls, made of rock were seven feet high, almost two feet thick, and formed the outer wall of the homes of thirty-nine families. The fort enclosed one and one-half acres of land with a gate at the west side, a post office in the south, and tithing office in the northwest corner. It was completed in March 1854.
