On September 3, 1862 during the Sioux Uprising the citizens of Forest City erected upon this site a stockade for the defense against Indians. Early next morning, soon after some 240 people had taken refuge there, the stockade was attacked. The Indians were driven off but a state of siege existed for ten days before the people were relieved by Company B of the 8th Minnesota Volunteer Regiment.
