Fort Taber/Fort Rodman State Beach and Reservation was once a military armory during the American Civil War that was never penetrated, due in part to one land surveyor-turned-military general, Gen. Robert E. Lee of the Confederate Army who took note of the fort's positioning and concluded it to be too difficult to pass. Today, Fort Taber/Fort Rodman is a family-friendly summer spot, housing public beach volleyball courts, a bike path, playground, picnicking area, historical museum, kite launch and more.
