Fort McHenry

Ft. McHenry

Monument City is not only home to Inner Harbor, but also to the Baltimore National Aquarium and many historical museums and monuments.

Fort McHenry National Monument encompasses over 43 acres of land on the Locust Point peninsula, near the opening of Baltimore Harbor.

The star-shaped brick fort, built between 1799 and 1802, housed the United States Army's enlisted men, quarters for the Commanding Officer, quarters for the Junior Officers, a guardhouse and the Powder Magazine. Fort McHenry was named after James McHenry, the second Secretary of War.

Francis Scott Key was inspired to write a poem entitled "The Star-Spangled Banner," when he saw an American flag flying after the British attack on Maryland during the War of 1812. This later because the national anthem of the United States.
