Fort Revere is an amazing abandoned fort in Hull, Massachusetts. It is situated on at the top of Telegraph Hill in Hull Village and contains the remains of two seacoast fortifications, one from the American Revolution and one that served 1898–1947. The fort is completely open for visitors to walk through. It is amazing exploring the old hallways and rooms in Fort Reverse. Some visitors get scared of the eerie silence and extreme darkness that can be experienced in some areas. While walking, visitors can see the remains of beds, fireplaces, gun openings, and more.
The interior is so much fun to explore and the exterior is well worth checking out. There is a path which allows people to walk on top of the fort and see the epic views of Boston Harbor. Be careful while walking because there are some old vents sticking up out of the ground. Visitors can also look down to see the different gun mount locations.
The fort was officially decommissioned and abandoned in 1947. Over the years, a 8-acre park was established around the fort to make exploring it easier. The park offers great amenities including ample parking, grills, tables, benches, and, of course, scenic views. It is open everyday of the year from sunrise to sunset. Parking at Fort Revere is free.
