Battery 245 is now open to the public with new displays constructed by our volunteers to illustrate what the battery would have looked like when it was active during WWII.
Visitors will see a plotting board that is approximately 11 feet long with a communication section in the background where soldiers were able to connect with both sides of the river. Another newly constructed display is the 5-cylinder diesel engine that was used to operate a generator for backup power. Originally Battery 245 had three of these engines. The interpretation of Battery 245 is an ongoing project, and the Friends look forward to providing more displays in the near future. Thank you to our volunteers for their impressive work on this project!
