Fort Trumbull State Park
New London, CT

This blockhouse is the oldest surviving structure at Fort Trumbull State Park.  It was built in the late 1790's as part of a program authorized by Congress to fortify seaports along the east coast in 1794.  Of all the structures built from Maine to Georgia as part of this program this is the only structure that exists to this day.
