Fort Garrison had many names – Oulton's Garrison, Risteau's Garrison and Olton's Garrison. It is a historic fortification building in Stevenson, on Garrison Farms Ct. The property was constructed around 1695 after the 1693 order from Governor Francis Nicholson and his Council. The 48 feet long and 18 feet wide rectangular fieldstone building was built to serve as a stronghold against attacks from the Native Americans. It was also put to use during the French and Indian War. In the early 1800s, a second-story loft and wood shingle roof was added to the fort to increase its height. By 1965, the property was acquired by the Baltimore County Department of Recreation and Parks. On January 25, 1971, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). In 2019, a sign at Fort Garrison was removed by the Maryland Historical Trust after complaints were received about its use of the term "hostile Indians."
