Col. William Preston constructed Fort William nearby in 1755 during the French and Indian War (1754 - 1763) as one in a series of fortifications to protect Virginia's frontier. A group of Indians paid a friendly visit in Oct. 1755, and Col. George Washington inspected the fort during his frontier tour in 1756. Indians attacked the fort in Oct. 1756 but were repulsed. In 1763, during Pontiac's War (1763 - 1764), nearby settlers flocked to Fort William for protection.
