History on the Hook
Sandy Hook (732)
The Sandy Hook Foundation continues
to support the NPS in efforts to record oral histories for Fort Hancock
veterans. The Foundation has given grants to preserve and make the
interviews available to the public.
Take a stroll around Fort Hancock,
a National Historic Landmark. Visit the Fort Hancock Museum, Battery
Potter, and History House, a restored home on Officers' Row. The Sandy
Hook Lighthouse, Keepers' Quarters and Barn tell the story of the lonely
life of a sentinel of the sea. Most sites are open weekends with
extended summer hours. Click on the links to the left to get in depth
