History of Seal Harbor
The luxury condominiums of Seal Harbor sit on the historic site of the former Fort Heath military fort. Built in 1898, Fort Heath served as a United States seacoast military base for the defense of Boston and Winthrop Harbors. In addition, the facility functioned as a United States Coast Guard radio station in the 1930s, a Navy research facility, a World War II battery and a Cold War radar station before seeing new life as a luxury condominium complex. There is a small park located nearby with a commemorative wall and a historical marker for Fort Heath.

Residents of this luxury building have the distinction of living in one of the oldest and most historic harbor towns in the United States. The town's location at the northern entrance to Boston Harbor made it an integral part of America's history over the past several decades, and it is still one of New England's most scenic sites. Settled in the 1600s, Winthrop has centuries of history along its streets. Residents can take in the wide variety of attractions such as the Deane Winthrop House - which dates to 1637 and is one of the oldest homes in America – the nation's oldest tidal mill at Slade's Mill and author Horatio Alger's homestead.
Winthrop has five historic sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places: the Deane Winthrop House, Edward B. Newton School, Fort Banks Mortar Battery, Winthrop Center/Metcalf Square Historic District and Winthrop Shore Drive. The nearby Fort Banks, built in the 1890s, was a United States Coast Artillery Fort that protected Boston Harbor from enemy attack.
Its harbor location makes Winthrop a prime spot to enjoy lighthouses, yacht clubs, marinas and beaches. Outdoor and natural attractions include the Franklin Park Zoo, the New England Aquarium, Belle Isle Marsh Reservation, the Harvard Museum of Natural History and the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University. Wellesley College Botanic Gardens has winding brooks and waterfalls as well as swamp, meadow and forest habitats.
There are a variety of restaurants, cafes, inns, golf courses, parks and organized sports and recreational opportunities available to Seal Harbor Condominium residents. Fenway Park – home of the Boston Red Sox – is just a drive away. The town mixes its historic past into seasonal celebrations that take place throughout the year, including strawberry festivals, tree-lighting ceremonies, fireworks and parades.
Long stretches of soft sand, crisp ocean breezes, family activities and seasonal events such as festivals and sand sculpting contests make Winthrop's beaches the perfect spot for Seal Harbor Condominium residents to rest and relax. Winthrop Beach, Yirrell Beach, Pico Beach and Point Shirley Beach are just a few of the beaches near Seal Harbor. Revere Beach, which is located nearby, was established in 1896 and has seen the likes of presidents and other notable figures. Its historic background includes the Coney Island atmosphere of roller coasters, restaurants, dance halls and other fun attractions. Considered America's first public beach, travelers flocked to this coastal resort area for nearly 100 years. The rides and amusement park atmosphere are long gone, but the area is just as popular as ever for fishing, boating, swimming and sunbathing.
Seal Harbor luxury condominiums combine the elegance of oceanfront living with an urban attitude that pays respect to the area's past heritage.
