The fort was rendered nearly obsolete with the invention of the airplane, and the fort became inactive in the 1930s. However it was reactivated for World War II. The fort was closed for good in 1953. It became a Washington state park, and in 1980 it became one of the destinations that comprise Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve.
