Do you have Fort Ward stories, photos or other artifacts to share?
The caretaker of this project website collects memorabilia regarding Fort Ward, the other Puget Sound coast defense installations (Fort Worden, Fort Casey and Fort Flagler), as well as photographs and other archival material relating to American coastal forts generally.
Once completed, the Fort Ward Community Hall will draw on this and other archival material for a colorful and dynamic interpretive element, one that will tell the role our “little fort at Bean Point” played in defending our nation through two world wars. We have already received a grant from the Coast Defense Study Group toward this goal.
If you have old photos or other items that will help us illustrate Fort Ward or coast defense history for current and future generations, please contact us at fortwardhall [at] gmail [ dot] com.
We’re particularly interested in hearing from anyone whose family members served at the fort during World Ward II — contact us, we’d love to talk with you and hear your family stories!
