Water Battery

Built in 1832, this casemated battery protected the seaward approach to Fort Monroe. It was obsolete by the 1890's and demolished soon thereafter. All that remains is this powder room. The high ground beyond it s all that remains of a redoubt which was designed to protect the fort from an attack by land.
