The primary purpose of Fort Williams may have been for coastal defense, yet many men, women, and children also called it home. This self-sustaining community featured many of the buildings and services typical of an American town of the time including a chapel, hospital, fire station, and bakery. In addition to the housing, administrative, and utility buildings, residents of Fort Williams enjoyed a theater, gymnasium, swimming pool, bowling alley, and clubs.
