Fort Norfolk is the last remaining of 19 harbor-front forts authorized in 1794 by President George Washington. The fort helped protect Norfolk, Virginia during the War of 1812 and most of its structures date back to 1810. Its four-acre site overlooks the Elizabeth River and includes a dungeon, officers' quarters, powder magazine, barracks, and guardhouse.
