"The Frost Garrison, on Frost Hill in East Eliot, still stands today. Built in 1738, it was the early settler' refuge during American Indian attacks. There was a secret passage between the main house and the garrison. The bottom level had an earthen floor"

"The lower level of the Frost Garrison housed animals during American Indian raids. The people fought off the attacks from the second floor. The walls of the garrison were seven inches thick."
