Fort Iaqua
(Camp Jaqua, Camp Iaqua)
 
 
The fort was established primarily as a Civil War post on August 5, 1863, on the travel route between Fort Humboldt and Fort Gaston and its garrison attempted to reconcile differences between the area's settlers and Indians without significant success. The fort was reportedly situated on Yeager (Iaqua) Creek about 18 miles east of the mouth of the Eel River, in Humboldt County. The post was abandoned on August 9, 1866.
