>>>— 1793-1797 —>The first settlement in this section was made up of four frame houses, a dozen or more cabins and a fort. It was called Federal town. Many of the soldiers died so a new fort was built several miles up the river and named Fort Fidius. It was located 2 miles below the mouth of Fishing Creek and 4 miles below this point.
