The Fort Hancock and Sandy Hook Proving Ground National Historic District, which includes the entire peninsula, has many stories to tell. Read the biographies of the people who made their impression on Sandy Hook and Fort Hancock.
The Sandy Hook Oral History Program consists of more than 100 interviews with people who either lived or worked at Sandy Hook. Most were soldiers and dependents of the U.S. Army, but many others worked here too. Interviews were conducted by park staff and Monmouth University student interns over several years.
