  View on Fort Point and the Golden Gate
by Muya

Fort Point was built between 1853 and 1861, at the beginning of the US Civil War, with the aim of protecting San Francisco harbor from attacks during and after that period.
Its arched casemates display the art of the master brickmason from the Civil War period.

The historic fort was used as a base of operations for building the Golden Gate Bridge.
