Fort Abercrombie, HD Kodiak
Home  |  Kodiak

The Coast Artillery installed the Battery Command and the first base end and spotting station, B 1/6 S 1/6, for Battery Const. #404 at the top of a 50-foot wooden tower some 500 feet west of the battery. The two-level station atop the tower was of wooden construction except for the floors, which used a layer of concrete over wood.

The tower footings now straddle one of the park's camp sites.
