In the early 1820's, Thomas McKay, a Hudson's Bay Company trapper, and his men built a fort at or near this site, becoming the first reported non-native structure in present-day Douglas County. Located at the confluence of Calapooya River and the Umpqua River, there is a park commemorating the fort and its builders.
