Fort Hamilton

A relatively recent fort, Fort Hamilton was built in 1870. However, forts were becoming less important by this time, and the fort never fully was implemented. However, due to this, the fort is in pretty good shape, and has been turned into a park of sorts.


Guests who come to the fort will be able to explore what is left of the defenses, including large cannons pointing into the harbor. Additionally, a garden surrounding the fort makes the visit a nice and peaceful experience.
