California State Historic Landmark 54
#054 Fort Stockton
Fortified briefly by Carlos Carrillo in 1838, this site became
Fort Dupont (July - November 1846) after American forces took Old Town during
the Mexican War. Retaken and held briefly by the Californios, it fell once more
to the Americans, who renamed it Fort Stockton and used it as campaign
headquarters for ending the Californio revolt in early 1847. The Mormon Battalion
stayed here later that year. The post was abandoned on September 25, 1848.
Nothing remains of this site.
