the Fort Winfield Scott is ACTUALLY a separate entity fort in the Presidio Complex and is different from Fort Mason and Fort Winfield Scott was physically a part of what is generally understood as the Presidio of San Francisco; and since 1910 it has comprised in part a geographically separate and architecturally distinct set of buildings around a separate parade ground most of them built in 1910. 1921 and 1912 and more tips, the Fort Winfield Scott Area occupies the higher elevation of the Presidio rather than the lower levels of Fort Point and Mason. The fort is near Baker Beach and Land's End rather than the fort mason and fort point which are nearer to crissy field.
