The Davis Fort – Built 1851

Soon after the first white families settled at Box Elder, they built a temporary fort to protect themselves from Shoshone Indian attacks.

The Davis Fort was named after their leader, William Davis and consisted of a row of simple log cabins.

The people moved out of the fort in the spring of 1852.
