Fort Laurens was constructed in 1778 as a stepping stone to the West and a staging area for an attack on Fort Detroit. The American soldiers stationed there were subsequently beset by British and Native American forces and the Fort was abandoned in 1779.

Fort Laurens was the only Revolutionary War fort built in what is now known as Ohio. The State Memorial and the Tomb of the Unknown Patriot of the American Revolution serve to honor the 21 soldiers who died there and the five soldiers unable to be identified.

Currently, no parts of the original fort remain above ground. However, the outline of the fort is still visible and the museum located on site has a wealth of information to offer visitors.
