That fort is cool!
Enjoyed the fort - have you been to the Civil War fort in Key West? Another good visit - just watch out for "Robert the doll"!
There are 2 old forts in Key West, Fort Zachary Taylor and East Martello, also Fort Jefferson on the Dry Tortugas where Dr. Samuel Mudd was imprisoned.JAY
Castillo (castle) SAN Felipe del Morro. Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. Baffles the mind that this was built without a crane or any power equipment.

We never felt a supernatural presence or saw anything really unusual other than a bedspread that got mussed a bit when no one was around to touch it. That was during a tour of the place.

On South Manitou Island there is a mass grave for some 20 victims of a cholera outbreak on a sailing vessel. Rather than taking the sick and dying to the mainland, the ship pulled into the bay on South Manitou to dispose By all reports, not all the folks who were placed in the grave were dead yet.
Reports of hauntings on the island became common shortly thereafter...
This house was on the Matanzas Inlet in St Augustine, Florida. We later found out the history of the massacre that occurred when we visited the nearby Fort Matanzas which neither of us knew anything about when we moved in.
The really scary part of the story is that when she first saw the guy I asked my wife if she thought the guy was a pirate. She thought about it for a minute and she said, “No, and he won’t talk to me. For some reason I think he is French.”. Which again we knew NOTHING about the history of that place at this time.
I love old military installations. The Castle and Fort in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico are magnificent. If you haven’t been, those by themselves are worth the trip.
Fort Mackinac is off shore on Mackinac Island where they built a more defensible stone fort when the old fort became untenable....both worth taking a look at.
