Davidson's Fort was once the western most outpost in Colonial America. The fort was originally constructed in 1776 with the assistance of troops provided by General Griffith Rutherford. Today, a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization has constructed a replica of the historic fort to interpret the pioneer-era history of Old Fort and the surrounding area. The fort is open every Saturday between 9:00 am and noon, and for specially scheduled events. Admission is by donation. Visit http://www.davidsonsforthistoricpark.com for more information.
