This was a delightful day. My little one and I explore Fort Washington Park which was the namesake of its location in Fort Washington, MD. Fort Washington, established near the community of Fort Washington, Maryland, was for many decades the only defensive fort protecting Washington D.C. The original fort, overlooking the Potomac River, was built in 1809. It was originally called Fort Warburton but was renamed in 1808. During the War of 1812, the fort was demolished by its own garrison during a British advance.
As of today, this historic fort is maintained by the National Park Service. It was initially constructed in 1824. It is a stone structure with a reliable cannon directed down the Potomac River. The fort was largely remodeled in the 1840s and 1890s. The Fort was turned over to the U.S. Department of the Interior in 1946 after its last military personnel left.
Now with that bit of history out of the way, here are some videos and pictures of our time in the park. Our visit took place on November 3, 2018. I hope you will enjoy this brief On Location Series—
oh again, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
