Fort Brown was built in 1812 by a "Col. Brown." Together with Fort Jennings and Fort Amanda to the south, and Fort Winchester to the north, it guarded the army supply route into the Maumee Valley. In 1813, Gen. Greene Clay's Kentucky Militia, forming the left wing of Harrison's army, passed this site in boats, on their way to relieve besieged Fort Meigs. According to tradition several soldiers are buried on this site.
