Once again the American Legion Coffey & Wilson Post 688 stepped up to the plate to support the efforts of the Harbor Defense Museum. Gentlemen- we thank you with admiration.

Coming soon a new interpretive sign dedicated to Fort Lafayette and a historic marker to commemorate GEN Lafayette’s visit to the Narrows during his 1824-25 Farewell Tour of the US.

A great way to start the weekend!
