“West Martello Tower and Gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Unfinished part of an old fort that is the site of a wonderful garden. Free they only ask for a donation and it is worth the stop. We were there and a bride and groom were there getting photos done. Great location for a photo shoot. Lots of architecturally interesting ruins in the gardens. Well worth a stop.

“West Martello Tower”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

This was a very interesting historic site! And, it is free (requested donation, but not required). Wear bug spray!! We went on a cool rainy day and I got ate up by mosquitoes! Beautiful gardens, interesting structure and history. Worth the stop.

Beautiful at every twist and turn in this old civil war fort that is taken care of by the local Garden Club. They do breathtaking decorating near Christmas and just as lovely during the rest of the year. Great place for taking photos, inside and outside.

“Beautiful place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We happened to see this while on the trolley tour around the island. Thankfully we did. It is filled with so many beautiful gardens and trees and things to see. Every turn was a new surprise! They only request donations! When we visit again, we will definitely go back!
