Also known previously as Fort Island Battery and Mud Island Fort, the area sits on Mud Island and served as a fort during the American Revolutionary War. It is believed to be haunted by Colonial soldiers. Numerous sightings have occurred including that of soldiers cleaning their guns and other sightings of soldiers. There's also reports of having heard sounds reflective of that time.

Some other sightings include that of "The Screaming Woman," "The Faceless Man," "The Lamplighter," "The Tour Guide," children and dogs, a Blacksmith and "The Sad-Looking Man."

In addition to the specific, there have been reports concerning multiple random sensory encounters by individuals. There have been reports of the scent of a wood fire and the aroma of bread baking on the breeze and warmth from a wood fire on the heath in one of the Fort’s casements where none was evident. Records of disembodied voices of soldiers’, sailors’, and civilians’ have all been heard and are well documented; sometimes over a century after they had lived at the fort. People have been, touched, pushed, pulled and sometimes restrained by unearthly hands. There are even reports of an entity that seems to have enmity for blond haired women!
