Fort Dale was built near this site in response to Indian attacks against settlers, notably the Ogly-Stroud massacre on March 13, 1818. Alabama Territorial Governor William Bibb sent Capt. Sam Dale with militia from Fort Claiborne to strengthen Fort Bibb at Pine Flat and build a new fort on the Federal Road. Named for its builder, Fort Dale was the first county seat, post office and voting site, and had the first church and school in Butler County.
