Fort Point National Historic Site
Fort Point has been called “the Pride of the Pacific,” and it’s easy to see why. It was not just a building, but an act of defiance against any would-be invaders. The architects who designed this fortress put their life on the line. With every stroke of wood and brick they fashioned into its formidable defenses – all for California’s prosperity, as well as keeping the essence of freedom.
In fact, Fort Point never had to fire its guns during the Civil War. However, this did not stop it from being an active deterrent. The presence of such a large military installation in San Francisco Bay would have been enough. Especially for those who sought independence by any means necessary against federal authority. Indeed, Fort Point was a relic of San Francisco’s Golden Age. And now, it is one of the most precious historic site in the area! Might as well discover its rich story by giving this place a visit – ready your cameras too. Because this is gonna be one for the books!
