Fort Raymond (1) History

The fort consisted of a square blockhouse, the lower part of which was a room for furs: the upper part was inhabited by Mr. Reuben Lewis (Meriwether Lewis's brother) and some of the hunters belonging to the establishment. There were some small outhouses, and the whole was surrounded by a palisade, about fifteen feet high.
