Battered by sea and storm, the massive walls of Fort Jefferson rise from Florida’s Garden Key in Dry Tortugas National Park. Cast-iron frames once held shutters for cannon portals. As it rusts, the iron expands dramatically, superintendent Dan Kimball explains, “and just explodes the masonry out of the walls.” The most recent effort to restore the walls began last year, but it’s going to cost more than 12 million dollars to complete. “We didn’t get funding this year,” Kimball says, “but we’re hoping to restart the project by 2008.”
