Members are encouraged to visit the Fort Adams Visitor Center to see the newly updated Museum display cases. Museum board member Jack McCormack, who also works at the Fort giving guided tours, contributed a number of items related to the Irish and the construction of the Fort. If you haven't taken a tour of the Fort, you are encouraged to do so. The docents do a fine job and you learn much about the beautiful stone and brickwork done over the 35 years of construction.
