Military Fort Visitor Center open for the summer

Event Details

The Visitor Center contains military artifacts and information about the 22nd Coastal Artillery which was headquartered at Fort Stark during World War II. The New Castle shipwreck exhibit and film is of great interest. The 10 acre site also has a walking trail with an information guide, a small, unsupervised beach and kayak access to the ocean and Little Harbor. As this is an historic site, no dogs or fires of any type are allowed. Fort Stark is located on a peninsula, historically called Jerry's Point, on the southeast corner of New Castle Island. It overlooks the Piscataqua River, Little Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean. Fort Stark was named in honor of John Stark, commander of N.H. forces at the Battle of Bennington (1777). Please visit with caution as this is a former military installation. Beware of the dangers of unprotected stairs, high walls, rough ground and slippery rocks. Adult supervision of children is required.
