Abandoned Military Hospital

Angel Island, San Francisco Bay, California

Known as “Fort McDowell” during WWII, the facilities on Angel Island were initially used as an immigration station, and then eventually a detention center for potential fifth columnists and prisoners of war. In 1947 its military post was decommissioned, and in 1962 the Army finally left the island. The remains still exist today, including a former barracks, missile silo and military hospital.
