Built by Andrew Donnally a few mile north about 1771. Attack on this fort by 200 Indians in 1778 was second most important frontier engagement in the state. Fort was relieved by force under Col. John Stuart.

Before the Fort Donnally attack, settlements had been warned by Philip Hammond and John Pryor, scouts at Point Pleasant, who, made up as Indians by Nonhelema, the sister of Cornstalk, passed and outran the Indians.
