Georges Island is dominated by historic Fort Warren, a Civil War-era fort known for its graceful granite archways and reputed ghost, the Lady in Black. The fort and its grassy parade ground are a popular place for a scenic low-stress walk. Take a ranger-guided tour or visit the new museum with exhibits about the history of the fort. Enjoy a picnic under the shade of a tree. Get exceptional views of the surrounding islands and Boston Light from the ramparts and towers. Georges Island is a frequent stop for the island ferries and provides a jumping-off point for other islands. Georges Island opens upon the first ferry arrival in May and closes on Columbus Day each year. The Harbor Islands can serve as a great setting and beautiful backdrop for many special occasions--from corporate events to birthdays, wedding receptions to retreats. Having your event on the islands combines unique natural beauty with the opportunity to support Boston Harbor Islands national park area. There is a private tent that can accommodate up to 250 people for a seated event and 300 for a standing reception. Summer Shack Catering is the exclusive caterer on the island and is happy to customize a particular menu for any event, as well as provide staffing, bar service, and more.
