About 600 feet south of this site and near the river stood Fort Fry occupied during the Indian War 1791-1795.

This fort protected the Waterford settlers during the period of the war. Waterford was founded by the Second Association of Settlers which expanded from the Ohio Company's headquarters at Marietta.

The fort was named in honor of Lieutenant Joseph Frye, proponent and designer. The troops were commanded by Captain William Gray.
