Fort Bull Historic Marker

Central Adirondack Trail, State Rt. 69, near Rome in Oneida County

Fort Bull, on Wood Creek, was built on the water route between Albany and Oswego about 1725.

Fort Bull was surprised by M. De Lery and a party of French and Indians, numbering 362 men on March 27, 1756.  The English lost the fort and all the stores which it contained, and 90 men. The marker is on the grounds of Erie Canal Village in Rome and well worth the visit as volunteers have been clearing the overgrowth to reveal the outline of the fort. A British flag is usually flying to mark the location.
