Point Frederick

A naturally defensible site, Point Frederick was reserved as early as 1788 for construction of a battery. Various fortifications were built on the point over the next 50 years. The martello tower still in existence was one of four erected to fortify Kingston during the Oregon Crisis in 1846.
