  • Overlooked because it's a fort? Who knows. I took pics of everything, but the best part is the gift shop. Stop by and talk to the lady. She's awesome. The Fort's got a lot of history. First location of a fort in the US before we were even the US. Called the Freedom Fort during the Civil Way because slaves would run to it to be free. Jefferson Davis was held here after the Civil War under charges. Earlier in the pre WWI and WW2 era, it's where militia were trained in artillery. During the wars, it was used as defense of the Navy yards. Only recently decommissioned, it still houses some military sure to the radar in use. We stopped in because of the heat and hot a lot more of an education of the fort than we expected. The fort is showing it's age, as well as the museum, but it's worth it to understanding our American History.
  • It's a very nice scenic place to walk around. Great exhibit inside the base too. I spent a whole day walking around here. The top of the base, you can walk here with your dogs. The graves are a pet cemetery. The landscape is taken care of but just be careful of the steep hills.
