Fort Boreman

Built in 1863 on Mount Logan by Company A of the 11th WV Infantry to protect the B7O Railroad line between Wheeling and Parkersburg. The defensive structure was named in honor of the new state's first governor, Arthur I. Boreman, who lived in Wood County. Though never attacked, the fort remained in use until June 1865. In 2003, it was listed on the National Register.
