Fort Janesville
(Camp Janesville)
In 1860, settlers built a loopholed stockade, with a bastion or block house in its southwest angle, Iess than a mile from the town of Janesville, Lassen County, after the Battle of Pyramid Lake (also known as the "The Ormsby Massacre") for protection from an Indian attack that never materialized. The site of the fort is now a California Historic landmark.
