U.S. Army post (1864-1966)

First fortified by the Spanish in 1797, this bluff above the bay was re-armed by the U.S. Army in 1864. The post remained active through the Civil War, western Indian Wars, and conflicts abroad, beginning with the Spanish-American War in 1898. During World War II, Fort Mason was the Army's logistics center for sending troops and supplies to the Pacific.

Fort Mason was designated a National Historic Landmark on February 4, 1985.
