  1. We looked for over an hour trying to locate Fort Defiance with no luck, this site is poorly marked to say the least.

    • David,

      I’m not sure where you were coming from. We have a brown historic highway sign on 321, another at the bridge at the turn for 268 and a sign stating Fort defiance half mile ahead. We also have a sign at the entrance on 268. Were you coming from the Wilkes county side or the caldwell side?
