At this fort, built between 1819 and 1834 and named for Revolutionary War hero Gen. Daniel Morgan, is located a museum which contains military artifacts from the War of 1812 through World War II. Included are a U.S. Model 1918M1 155mm Gun and Model 1918A1 Carriage.  The fort had been converted to a park in 1927, but in 1941 it was reactivated for use by the Army, Navy and Coast Guard. The harbor was protected by artillery placed here, and patrols headquartered here used jeeps and horses to watch the beaches. After World War II it was again used as a park.
