Fort Norfolk Main Gate

The main gate, or sally port, has been the principal access to the fort since about 1810 and features distinctive archways. The large green oak doors, believed to be original, are each suspended on a single pintle and hinge. The smaller door allowed the guard to view callers without losing the security of the closed gate.
