The main entrance of Historic Fort Wayne, showing some of the structures on the grounds outside the fort. Rows of housing for enlisted men and officers stretched out from the fort itself, as well as the fort's jail and hospital building. Note the thickness of the walls of the fort - the fort was constructed to withstand an invasion from Canada, which at the time was still an English dominion. The mortar and cannon situated on top of the gate structure were not placed there during the fort's operational life; they were placed there as displays in later years.
