Fort A.P. Hill, World War II

The Caroline County, Virginia Towns That Were Destroyed To Build Fort A.P. Hill At The Beginning Of WWII

In 1941, during the beginning of the American involvement in World War II, the United States Federal Government purchased a third of Caroline County, Virginia which included various small towns. Several historical buildings such as churches and schools, were demolished during the construction of the Army base.

Liberty Baptist Church, which was built in 1850 and is the only church that U.S. Army currently uses within the grounds of Fort A.P. Hill, is the only pre-1941 religious structure that exists in the base.
