Fort Stanton Overlook 2.5 rating

  Forts

Fort Stanton was the first of dozens in the 'Fort Circle' designed to protect the capital from Confederate attacks during the Civil War. All that remains is a historic marker, but the real attraction is the superb view of the capital from this high, grassy hill behind the church parking lot.
