StoppingPoints.com Editorial on Site of Bird's Fort:
Note: There appears to no longer be a historical marker at this entry's location, and there's apparently no longer a Gun Club at this location. As of 4/26/2009, the site appears to be on the grounds of a large, private, commercial construction company and is unreachable. The historical marker may be found nearby, inside the entrance to the River Legacy Park entrance: Bird's Fort Historical Marker, off Collins in Arlington.
