Long Description:
Fort Cusseta
Chambers County
Following the signing of the Creek Treaty in 1832 the early white settlers constructed a 16 by 30 foot hand hewn log fort for protection against a possible indian uprising from the Cussetaw Indian village on Osanippa Creek just north of here. Walls of the fort were 4 and 6 feet high. With portholes at height of 4 feet. Still visible after 140 years. Last known fort of its kind in the southeast.
