Description

Fort Wells was a pejorative name given the rock fortifications or batteries on the hills guarding the entrance to Little Emigration Canyon.

These rocks were put here in 1857 to protect the Mormons soldiers that may have had to fight Johnston's Army (Utah War), if a peaceable settlement hadn't been reached. There was not really a fort here and no shots were fired.

Here's a closeup of the bridge:
