Fort Hamilton

The remains of Fort Hamilton are located in Port Elizabeth at the northern end of Admiralty Bay. Essentially a cannon battery and look-out, the fort was constructed by the British in the 1700s. 

Though little of the fortification remains, you can still see cannons as well as enjoy a lovely panoramic view of the bay. The fort and area is named 'Hamilton' after Alexander Hamilton; founder father of the United States, although he never set foot on the island. His father however lived on Bequia in the Friendship Bay area from 1774 to 1790 when the British worked to expedite British settlement on the island.
