1864 - 1867

In 1909 Nebraska State Surveyor Robert Harvey surveyed the Fort Mitchell site documenting the location of the fort for the Nebraska State Historical Society. Mr. Harvey's site sketch is partially shown to the right.
The granite Oregon Trail marker was placed on the Oregon Trail in 1923. The original location of the Oregon Trail marker was on the Oregon Trail, 279 feet at an azimuth of 289º to the NW from the brass cap below. Both markers were originally installed on the north shoulder of the highway and relocated to this site in 2012.
The NW corner of Fort Mitchell is located 127 feet at and azimuth of 191º to the SW from the brass cap. The Fort Mitchell site was probably obliterated and used for embankment for the west highway approach to the Concrete Arch River Bridge in 1920.
