HISTORY OF WORK POINT BARRACKS

by Jack Bates

WELCOME


Welcome to my website! These pages are a work in progress and will be updated from time to time.

I have divided the History of Work Point Barracks into 10 Parts. You can access each Part by way of the navigation bar on the left side of each page or by the Table of Contents below. I have also included "continued ..." links at the bottom of each page. As this web site develops, links to other web sites and resources will be referred to, and more of my topics enhanced. Photographs or pictures included will receive credit if requested with my sincere thanks.

Thanks for visiting, and please check back often as the site is constantly being updated with new information and photos.

We have just uploaded a new video to YouTube featuring Fort Macaulay Historical Interpretation Tour – May 2016. A walk about the 1895 Fort and relating its history to members of VEMRA and the public. Click here to view. The next scheduled event is Saturday, May 26, 2018.

I welcome all comments and contributions to opcmh.jb
