Dry Tortugas National Park, is one of the darkest places on the east coast of the United States.

Dry Tortugas National Park, on a remote island hours away from Key West, lies the largest masonry structure in the Americas.



In 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, upon visiting the island, named it a National Monument, and in 1992 it became part of Dry Tortugas National Park. Built with 16 million bricks, but never finished, the fort served as a prison during Civil War
