Fort Norfolk Guardhouse

Over the main gate is the guardhouse, home of the fort's guard. The guard regulated traffic into and out of the fort, and maintained security of the fort as well as the orderly conduct of the garrison. The guard room was renovated in 1993 thanks to a grant from the National Society of the Colonial Dames of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Plexiglass shields allow viewers to see the progression of inner wall construction from the original construction through the late 1800s Navy period.
