Fort Adams, a National Historic Landmark, built 1824-57, remaining in active use through World War II, is the most complex coastal fortification in the United States. Best known today as the host site of the Newport Jazz and Folk Festivals, Fort Adams was designed to defend against attacks from both land and sea.
