The early settler of Grantsville decided to build a fort as a means of protection from local Native Americans. The walls on the north and west sides were made of hard packed dirt and were five feet wide at the bottom and 12-feet high. The other walls were of rock and adobe construction, three feet wide and 12 feet high. The monument marks the site where the fort was located. It sits beside the old First Ward Church Building.
Location: At the southwest corner of Cooley and Clark Streets in Grantsville.
