Ruins of Fort St. Inigoes
A portion of Western St. Inigoes was the site of the St. Inigoes Fort. This spot overlooked the St. Mary's River during the time of colonial St. Mary's City. This spot was used for strategic protection for defending the water access point to the city which at the time was under the threat of anti-Catholic militias. It was also being protected from Virginia Colony militias opposed to the colonization of Maryland.
The land that the Fort sat on saw a lot of shore erosion and as such the area collapsed in the St. Mary’s River. The site of the ruins now stands underwater just offshore.
