Georges Island and Fort Warren

Georges Island and Fort Warren


Boston, Massachusetts (MA), US
Georges Island was used for agricultural for two hundred years until 1825 when the U.S. Government acquired the island for coastal defense.

Over the next twenty years the island was dramatically altered and one of the country's finest forts was built. Dedicated in 1847, Fort Warren's defensive design was virtually obsolete upon completion.
