Fort :miles, located in Cape Henlopen State Park, was a key piece in the nation's coastal de- fense during World War II. The defense of Delaware Bay and Delaware River was critical to the war effort. The heavy guns, mine fields and searchlights of Fort Miles provided in-depth defense; however, the growing use of long-range missiles brought an end to harbor defenses in the United States. By 1958, Fort Miles was no longer important to the defense of the region, and in 1964, 543 acres of the base were returned to Delaware, forming the heart of Cape Henlopen State Park. In April 2005, Fort Miles was added to the National Register of His- toric Places. The Fort Miles Historical As- sociation had its first movie night April 14 in a theater made out of the former motor generator room.
