On 20 August 2004, we made a trip to Fort Zumwalt. We were within an
hour of the location, and couldn't resist stopping. It is now a park,
and very beautiful. These are the pictures we took that day. The
above monument sits at the entrance, noting the former owners Nathan
and Rebecca Heald. They bought the property from the Zumwalts.
This is the chimney remaining from the original log cabin. It is a
double chimney, with a fireplace in front and in back.
This is a closeup of the chimney.
The house was closed that day, so we didn't get to see inside.
This is listed as both Fort Zumwalt, and in older paperwork it is
Stoney Point Cemetery as well. Here are the two remaining stones,
Jacob and Queti (Catherine) Miller Zumwalt.
If you are interested in visiting, the park is located in O'Fallon MO,
west of the intersection of K Highway and Veteran's Parkway.
