Ft. McKavett - Ft. Clark Military Road

From nearby Ft. Terrett, this Road in 1852 led south to Ft. Clark and north to Ft. McKavett.
Selected mainly because it had water available, it served as route for freight and mail, 1868, when forts were reactivated. Over it went troops, supplies, a few immigrants and pioneer ranchers. It was noted also for passage of forays of Col. Ranald Mackensie against the hostile Indians to the northwest.
After forts were abandoned in 1883, ranchers drove cattle to market over parts of the road.&n   (1966)
