Fort St. Joseph was a British outpost on the southernmost part of St. Joseph Island on Lake Huron. The fort consisted of a blockhouse, powder magazine, bakery building, Indian council house and storehouse surrounded by a palisade. Covered an area of 325 hectares along the St. Mary's River, Fort St. Joseph was the staging ground for the initial attack in the War of 1812. The fort was not only a military outpost, but also a meeting place for trade and commerce in the region. It was the British Empire's most westerly outpost.
