Once part of the coastal defense system, which from the Civil War to the Cold War protected San Francisco Bay and its valuable port from attack, today, the fort is an inspiring showcase of a remarkable post-to-park conversion. After more than a century as a US Army installation, Fort Baker is now protected by the National Park Service, and its historic buildings, fortifications, and spectacular views are available for public enjoyment.

Inside you'll find an in-depth history of the evolution of Fort Baker, historical and contemporary maps and photographs, artist's renderings of the never-built fort at Lime Point, self-guided tours of the fort's parade grounds and waterfront, and appendices with detailed information on army units, commanding officers.
