The Miami Fort Generating Station, like another Ohio station (Beckjord Generating Station) is a dual-fuel power generating facility. It is a major coal-fired electrical power station, supplemented with a small oil-fired facility. Miami Fort is located two miles east of Lawrenceburg, Indiana, immediately north-east of the tripoint of Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky, on the Ohio territory. Miami Fort Station is named for the nearby Miami Fort (not to be confused with Fort Miami in the same state). Miami Fort Generating Station is one of the two coal power plants near Lawrenceburg, Indiana, the other being Tanner's Creek Generating Station.
