On This Very Spot in 1816, Fort Gaines was established by order of General Edmund P. Gaines, commander of a large district, who used this as his headquarters. Containing two blockhouses, the 100-foot square fort was enclosed by a stockade eight feet high. During 1817, when Indians were active in the area, settlers took refuge in the fort, garrisoned by Federal troops under General John Dill. Maintained for a number of years, the fort stood on the brow of the bluff just below the confluence of Town Branch with Chemochechobee Creek.

On This Very Spot now stands a replica of the original wooden fort.
