Fort Point, an Army fortification completed just before the Civil War, sits at the mouth of the San Francisco Bay. Now nestled under the southern approach to the Golden Gate Bridge, the fort is a National Historic Site and an important Western example of “Third System” style of military architecture. In this gallery, explore historic and contemporary images, including projects and events and the Golden Gate.
