Located on a bluff overlooking Humboldt Bay, this old military post was established in 1853 to assist in conflict resolution between the Native Americans and gold hungry settlers. Brevet Lt. Colonel Robert C. Buchanan was first assigned to protect settlers on Humboldt Bay. His orders were to establish a post in the vicinity of Uniontown.
