Historic California Posts:
Fort San Bernardino
(Morman Camp, Morman Stockade)

In 1851 Mormons built a 300-by-720-foot, 12-foot-high stockade when the town of San Bemardino was threatened d by an Indian attack. The post, later renamed Fort San Bemardino, soon extended far beyond its original limits. In 1855 small elements of the Army were
stationed here for a short time. The site is now occupied by the courthouse located on Arrowhead Avenue between 3rd and 4th Streets in the center of downtown San Bernardino.
