Fort Ward, northwest of Old Town along Braddock Rd, is the best-restored of the 162 Civil War forts known as the Defenses of Washington. The Northwest Bastion of the fort has been completely restored, and the remaining earthwork walls give a good sense of the defenses’ original appearance. The on-site museum features exhibits on Civil War topics.
