Caption X9 Elk Garden Fort Just south of here stood Elk Garden Fort, one of a string of defensive posts and protective forts that served the community of Elk Garden and isolated homes in the Clinch Valley in the 18th century. There is no known date of construction, but it is believed to have been a large and well-stockaded fort. An important outpost during the Indian wars of the frontier period, it was garrisoned by 1774 under the command of Captain John Kinkead. The site was later the homestead of Governor Henry C. Stuart (1914-1918). Department of Historic Resources, 1989
