His­tory Un­der the Bridge

Where San Francisco - - The Guide -

You’ve likely al­ready vis­ited the Golden Gate Bridge, but you may well have missed the Civil War- era brick fort sit­ting at the foot of its south­ern anchorage. Fort Point was built in 1861 after eight years of con­struc­tion, and dur­ing the Civil War, up to 500 men were gar­risoned there, but they never saw any action. In 1970 it was named a Na­tional His­toric Site. Tour the land­mark Fri­day through Sun­day, and be sure to go to the top of the fort for the views. Long Ave. and Marine Dr., 415.556.1693, nps.gov
