Spanish Artillery: San Domingo
National Park Service, GGNRA
Cast in 1628 in Lima, Peru, the San Domingo bears the coat of arms of Don Diego Fernandez de Cordoba, 17th Viceroy of Peru. Though spiked (rendered inoperable) by Fremont's men during the Bear Flag Revolt, the San Domingo was later re-vented.
The San Domingo is located outside of Building 2.

In 1882, the fort now known as Fort Point was given the name "Fort Winfield Scott", a name it retained for four years before being downgraded to a sub-post of the Presidio. In 1912, the name was reused for the new coast artillery post at the Presidio, today's Fort Scott.
