Spotlight on Fort Miles

Fort Miles is/will be receiving a lot of attention in the coming days because a relic from World War II is currently making its way toward Fort Miles. The 16 inch gun headed to Cape Henlopen was part of the heavy weaponry on the battleship USS Missouri.

Fort Miles was a key piece of our nation’s coastal defense during World War II, and it is located in what is now Cape Henlopen State Park.  Fort Miles is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is a great place to learn about the role of the Delaware shore during World War II.  Fort Miles is/will be receiving a lot of attention in the coming days because a relic from World War II is currently making its way toward Fort Miles.  The 16 inch gun headed to Cape Henlopen was part of the heavy weaponry on the battleship USS Missouri.  Although this exact gun was never at Fort Miles, it is similar to the two Army guns housed there, ready to defend the coastline should the need arise.  The gun is 66 feet long, weights a quarter of a million pounds, and could shoot a 1-ton shell around 23 miles!  This massive gun is set to arrive in Georgetown on Monday, April 16th and make its way to Cape Henlopen from there.  Nobody is exactly sure when the gun will arrive at Fort Miles, but in the meantime you can take a tour or participate in the interpretive program at Fort Miles.  The Orientation Building is open from 10am-4pm on Tuesday-Saturday.
