Fort Hancock


 Fort Hancock
is a former United States Army Fort at Sandy Hook in Middletown Township, New Jersey.
The Coastal Artillery Base defended the atlantic coast and the entrance to the New York Harbor,
with it's first gun batteries operational in 1896.

There are a lot of pictures from back in the day here and a bit more information here.













We spotted this huge birds nest on top of this old chimney.

  3. So much history here and the buildings were fascinating. That nest is huge, do you think it might be a eagle's nest? So glad you have been able to be out and about and sharing with us.

  9. I love those old buildings! I'm assuming they are not maintained in any way. It's fun to see old military installations like that. Lots of history.
