We went by this fort while on a harbor cruise and heard about it's history. What a story to hear. Long time building. We did not have time to make our way out to the fort for a flashlight tour.

More than a pretty view. Historic island and fortress in the Portland Harbor. Clear view of the island is avail@ble from visiting cruise ships.

Cool fort. Closed inside for renovations. Awesome to see by boat or long lens. Don't miss this hidden gem.
