1. The Formidable Fort Miamis Marker
Inscription.  Built between April and August of 1794 by British troops, Fort Miamis featured four bastions, a river battery, barracks, officers' quarters, supply buildings and repair shops. The outpost housed over 130 British troops. Fourteen cannons protected the fort in all directions. Approaching by land, opposition faced a 25-foot- deep trench with an abatis. Archaeological excavations in 1982 unearthed nails, wall timbers, bottle fragments, regimental buttons and other artifacts. All that remains today are the earthworks.
