      Cheat Summit Fort, also referred to as Fort Milroy, is a Civil War period Federal fortification located near U.S. Route 250 south of Huttonsville, Randolph County, West Virginia. The fort is located on the 19th century route of the Staunton-Parkersburg Turnpike, approximately 1.5 miles from Cheat Bridge. The site is about 4,000 feet above sea level, on the summit of Cheat Mountain. Cheat Summit fort was constructed by Federal troops following a Confederate withdrawal to the Greenbrier River after Union victories at Rich Mountain in Randolph County and Corricks Ford in Tucker County. The fort was intended to secure access to Staunton-Parkersburg Turnpike and thwart any attempts by the Confederates to cut the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. Construction of the fort commenced in July of 1861 by order of General George B. McClellan. However, McClellan did not remain in West Virginia long enough to see the fort completed as he was transferred east to command the Army of the Potomac.
