Near the Key Bridge, Fort Carroll is a fascinating piece of Baltimore history.
Now abandoned, the manmade island that was constructed in 1848 has some eye-catching architecture and a lighthouse. According to Baltimore Heritage, it also had a variety of uses as a storage spot and pistol range before being abandoned in 1920.
Since then, developers have had plans like a casino and conference center, but none came to fruition, the AP reported back in 2004.
A drone video posted this week on Vimeo by Daniel Regner captures the mysterious desolation of the island, and shows that it continues to be a home for birds.
And hey, the harbor views aren’t bad, either.
