There is a cost of $5 per person for tours of World War II Battery 519 at Fort Miles.

“We will also be having guest speakers that week that will have presentations dealing with WWI history and what was happening locally in the area at the time,” said Sean Carrow, Interpretive Programs Manager for the Fort Miles Museum & Historic Area.
