Fort Defiance


Author(s):
Abstract:
Fort Defiance, the Caldwell County home of Revolutionary War General William Lenoir, takes its name from a local frontier fort. The state purchased the structure from the Lenoir family in the mid-1960s. Now a historic site, Fort Defiance has been restored to its 1792 appearance, complete with over 300 articles, ranging from books to furniture, originally owned by Lenoir.
