Details

Constructed in 1755, this French and Indian War era fortification consisted of a star-shaped wood stockade with four interior buildings. It was destroyed by the French in 1756 during the Massacre at Fort Bull and rebuilt later that same year as Fort Wood Creek. Located on the grounds of the Erie Canal Village, the site of the old fort is accessible to the public and is marked with a stone monument, a large, carved boulder.
