Numerous seacoast fortifications lined the shores of New England, from colonial times through the early years of the newly independent United States. Many of these forts were repurposed for later defense purposes but were decommissioned over the course of the 20th century. Fort Revere, located in Hull, Massachusetts south of Boston, has been turned into a historic site for visitors and tourists and is now operated by the Metropolitan Park System of Greater Boston.
