The Nevada Traveler: Don’t overlook San Francisco’s Fort Point

Built between 1853 and 1861 on the site of an earlier adobe fort known as El Castillo de San Joaquin, which had been erected by the Spanish between 1793 and 1794, Fort Point was constructed to protect the City by the Bay from possible foreign invaders (apparently a concern after the Gold Rush of 1849).
