— Gateway Nat'l Rec Area —Begun in 1847, this granite structure was finally completed during the Civil War. Its four-tier design allowed up to 116 guns to skip cannonballs across the Narrows. However, by the mid-1860s bigger, more-accurate guns could destroy a stone fort like this. Comprised, it became obsolete almost before its last stones were laid.
