Fort Norfolk Dungeon
Visitors passing through the main gate will see a small opening with bars to the right. This opening allowed sentries to keep an eye on prisoners locked up in a room commonly referred to today as the Dungeon. This small brick vaulted room is built into the rampart. Black Hole was a nickname given to dimly lit rooms or cells where soldiers under arrest were kept while awaiting court martial. In the earliest days of the fort, this room probably was a magazine for storing powder and shot.
