The new year is shaping up to be a major one for Fort Miles. By the end of April, the Fort Miles Historical Association and Delaware State Parks will unveil a $1 million project that includes a new road and a 103-space parking lot for the fort and its museum in the underground Battery 519. In addition, work is progressing on a special-events venue overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on top of the 80-foot dune at Battery 519 accessible only to paying museum or special-events guests. “It's a very unique spot on the East Coast,” said association member Mark Chura, who is coordinating the projects. “It's the highest point between Cape Cod, Mass., and Kill Devil Hills, N.C.”
Most of the funding for the projects came from a $600,000 Longwood Foundation grant, which was supplemented by state funds and in-kind donations.
