Loved discovering Horton Point. We visited the beach below- did some fishing and was then given an amazing tour by some great volunteers. So much history.

Well kept grounds and an interesting part of the historic NOFO. It makes for a nice excursion. There are even pick nick benches. One can climb stairs down to the sound.
