Ruins in Cusseta

Fort Cusseta

1.0/10

Fort Cusseta was a wooden stockade built by white settlers to protect against possible Creek Indian attacks. Its ruin still exists today within the small city of Cusseta, Alabama.

Following the signing of the Creek Treaty in 1832, the early white settlers built a 16 feet by 30 feet hand-hewn log fort for protection from a possible uprising from a Cusseta Indian village on Osanippa Creek. Walls were four and six feet high with portholes at a height of four feet. The fort never saw any military action. Following the removal of the Indians, the fort was incorporated into a building that had various uses over the years, including that of a country store. Today the structure is vacant with its surviving heart-pine walls exposed and beginning to deteriorate.
