Saved by two historic rides for powder. Ann Bailey on horseback through wilderness to Lewisburg and return. Fleming Cobbs poled down Kanawha River to Point Pleasant and return.

This boulder is established to commemorate Clendennin's Fort which was built in 1788 for the protection of the early settlers against the Indians and stood here.
