This Mansion had to be beautiful in its day. The mansion housed married enlisted men and a Non commissioned officers club. Wish it could be restored and actually view inside. A beauty

Walk out to the old Fort Gun Placements, to bad for the graffiti, then come up to the Mansion from the paths in the back. Use your imagination as to what it would have been like to live here in its hay day.

Lots to see at this one location. The mansion, ocean & lighthouse all in a well maintained park. Perfect for all ages!

Not much to see because of the deterioration. You can't walk into the mansion or around it. Due to it's condition, much was fenced off for safety reasons. The history, however, was worth exploring if you're a history buff like me.

Interesting Mansion, I had so many questions, why has the city left it and not restored it. Huge house from back in time
