Every 4 th Saturday of the month a program about Fort Fremont and Coastal Artillary is held at the St Helena Library and then a tour of the site is held. Very nice tour and good history.

No cost. This site is not active with guides. It's open with few signs. Suggest doing history on net before seeing it for better understanding the Fort.
