Ferry Island Fort

Originally planned as an emergency escape route, Ferry Island Fort would protect the ferries taking people from the main island to the well defended St. George in the case of an attack. Form 1790 and into the 1900's, the fort stood ready for the worst.


Today, the fort is mainly in ruins, and guests can feel free to explore them and take a look of what remains of this old vanguard.
