    by GuthrieColin
 

In 1858 this land was purchased by the US government and the Admiralty Head lighthouse was constructed. In 1890 it was taken over by the army and named “Fort Casey” in honor of Brigadier General Thomas Lincoln Casey. This fort was built to protect the Puget Sound from would be naval attacks. In conjunction with the other members of the “triangle of death” no attack was ever launched against the area.
As for the fort now, it’s a maze of dark rooms that are often wet and not so fresh smelling. However, these forts bring back great memories for me as a kid running around the area. Pack a flashlight if you are interested in exploring.

Directions: Located 3 miles south of Coupeville, WA primarily on Fort Casey Rd.
