Fort Dobbs is a historic site in Statesville, North Carolina. It is best noted for being the only state historic site associated with the French and Indian War, also known as the Seven Years War.

Fort Dobbs was built in 1756 after the orders of the colonial Governor Arthur Dobbs. The fortifications were used to protect Piedmont settlements against the battles involved in the French and Indian War. Unlike a lot of other forts which were located on the coast, Fort Dobbs is located inland, making it the state?s only frontier fort. Despite the fact that only one battle was fought in the site, it is still quite a well noted historic area.

Today, Fort Dobbs is open to the public for tours and hosting events. They host several interesting historic celebrations and reenactments throughout the year.
