About Fort Loudoun
Fort Loudoun is one of the earliest British fortifications on the western frontier, built in 1756. Located in the valley of the Little Tennessee River, near the Appalachian Mountains, Fort Loudoun State Historic Area provides a glimpse of life during the time of the French and Indian War (1754-1763). The future of the North American continent was in the balance as armies from France, Spain and England fought for control of this land and it’s vast resources. Native Americans were caught up in this struggle as they strove to protect their homes and way of life. Fort Loudoun (1756-1760), in the heart of the Overhill Cherokee country, played a part in that conflict which eventually laid the foundation for our nation we live in today.
