Map overview of the area.







Old foundation from previous searchlight, and tower supports for Searchlight #18.






Collapsed section of tower and remains of concrete roof of Searchlight shelter for #18


Remains of old Searchlight foundation where #19 tower was located.




Remains of several of the tower piers for tower.




Drawing of similar tower at the other end of reservation.


Powerhouse. Its in bad shape in one corner, but still standing.








Cool little detail above entry door to the powerhouse. Looks original, but could have been a later addition.


RCW for the Powerhouse.


Controller booth for SL #18 was located in the G1 observation station. Only the concrete remains of this original Sewell type building that once served as the fire command for Fort Stevens are present today.




The controller station for SL #19 was located in a double Base End Station designated for Battery 245 and Battery 246.




More paperwork on this issue.






Enjoy!
