Preserve Fort Jefferson
Phase II Project Featured on NBC6

Dry Tortugas National Park has initiated a multi-phased, multi-year preservation project to stabilize Fort Jefferson. The scope of this project is to carefully remove the existing brick surrounding the embrasure (cannon) openings on the lower level in order to gain access to the
original iron elements. Bricks will be documented, cleaned, and set aside for reuse.

The demolition and stabilization work you are witnessing is being carried out by skilled masons from the Joseph Gnazzo Company Inc. of Union, CT.
