George Island Boston Harbor
Robert Reoch’s Recent Visit to George Island
One of my bucket list items of late was to visit some of the Islands in Boston Harbor. We had a free afternoon and the weather was perfect, so we took a ferry to George Island. George Island is home to Ft. Warren, which was originally built to defend Boston Harbor from any type of naval attack. However, by the time it was completed it was obsolete and never used for its originally intended purpose. Instead, it was used to house Confederate prisoners of war during the Civil War.
Here are a few photos from our outing:
