Fort Fincastle

The small fort of Fincastle was built 1793 overlooking the city of Nassau. It served as a lighthouse until 1819 and was subsequently used as a signal tower. Reached by climbing the Queen's Staircase, the tower is New Providence's highest point. This fort's 'bow' is patterned like a Mississippi paddle-wheel steamer and was originally built to defend Nassau against invasion.
