Fort Wetherill In Rhode Island Just Might Be The Strangest Tourist Trap Yet

Fort Wetherill is one of the most interesting historical sites in Rhode Island. Back in the Revolutionary War, the fort served as an important defense point overlooking Narragansett Bay. After World War II, the fort was turned over to the state. The area around the fort is now Fort Wetherill State Park, a 51-acre reservation.

Fort Wetherill is such a unique piece of history – the fort itself looks pretty spooky in its current abandoned state, but the state park’s views are absolutely stunning.

How do you feel about the graffiti on the fort? Does it add to the charm or should it be removed to preserve the fort’s historical value? Share your opinions in the comments!
