This point marked the northeast corner of the stockade of a post that was maintained on Grosse Ile by the United States Army for a short time after the War of 1812. The post was garrisoned by detachments of the Fifth Infantry Regiment which were quartered in seven log cabins. The troops protected the island's civilian population and their property from Indian raids.
