about Fort Warren - Georges Island:
The fort once served as a training ground, patrol point, and Civil War prison. After one hundred years of military use the fort was decommissioned in 1947 and acquired by the Metropolitan District Commission. It was open to the public in 1958 for historic preservation and recreation.
The legend of The Lady in Black, the ghost of a Confederate prisoner's wife who was sentenced to death for aiding in an escape and hanged in a black robe made from the Fort's mess hall drapes, lives on to this day.
Tours are conducted in season.
