A Prehistoric Fort consisting of earthen walls accompanied by moats, formerly occupied this site. The walls, three to four feet high, probably were surmounted by palisades which together with the steep river banks, rendered the fort fairly secure from attack by enemies.

The fortification probably pertained to the Erie Nation of Indians, living in northern Ohio prior to 1655.

The unobstructed view of the river in either direction enabled defenders of the fort to guard against surprise attack by enemy canoemen?.
