9780976149422: Fort Baker Through the Years: The Post, the Park, the Lodge

Fort Baker lies hard-by the famous Golden Gate, literally in the shadow of the famous bridge. For nearly 140 years it was a stronghold of the the U.S. Army, where glowering coastal fortifications overlooked snug Victorian military houses. Built to protect San Francisco from enemies that never came, the fort today is a part of the National Park Service and home to the world-famous Cavallo Point Lodge at the Golden Gate.

For the first time, the fort's fascinating human an historic stories are retold in the publication, Fort Baker Through The Years: The Post, The Park, The Lodge.

Written by historical architect Kristin Baron and historian John Martini, Fort Baker Through the Years provides fascinating glimpses into the fort's many stories: the Huimen people who lived along its shores for centuries, the early Spanish and Mexican settlers, fog-bound lighthouse keepers, and the soldiers who manned the fort's guns and lived in its barracks. In addition, the book contains numerous appendices on the fort's individual buildings, its armament, the military units stationed there, and the officers who commanded the post.

Inside you'll find:

    • Historical and present-day photographs

    • In-depth history of the evolution of Fort Baker

    • Historical and contemporary maps and photographs

    • Artist’s renderings of the never-built fort at Lime Point

    • Self-guided tours of the fort’s parade ground and waterfront

    • Building histories for today’s Cavallo Point: The Lodge at the Golden Gate

    • Appendices with detailed information on army units, commanding officers and fortifications

      Maps to help you get there, hike the area and navigate the site
