Long Description:

The fort was the most northerly outpost in Utah, it was one hundred twenty feet square with walls eight feet high and three feet thick. Built of rock, part of which is in this monument, the cirgular stones where taken from one of the first burr flower mills built in northern Utah in 1852, owned by Omer and Homer Call. The Three Call brothers were early pioneers and builders of northern Utah.
