  Ft Phoenix
by Tom_Fields

During the Revolutionary War, in 1778, the British destroyed this fort. Later, it was rebuilt. With a commanding position overlooking the harbor entrance, it remained an active fort for some years. It's now a state reservation.

Address: Fort St. Fairhaven, MA 02719
Directions: Located at one end of the Hurrican Barrier, along the coast.
