Inscription. This area is where troops were quartered. Most cabins within the earthworks were lumber structures with bark roofs. These measured roughly 40 feet by 20 feet and were extremely crowed at times. The circular mounds usually represent collapsed chimneys. Under certain ground conditions it is possible to view the outline of the cabin, represented by a subtle embankment. Many of the mounds were vandalized before Cheat Summit Fort entered into public ownership.
 
Erected by US Forest Service.
