Inscription. Historians and archaeologists consulted Colonial and Territorial Period documents to locate the site of the Santo Domingo Redoubt, which was also referred to at various times as the Tolomato Redoubt.

Archeological excavations of the Santo Domingo Redoubt confirmed documentary evidence that the redoubt, constructed in the 1730s, was rebuilt on two separate occasions (1808 and 1834). Excavations have revealed that, unlike the five-sided structures represented on some maps, the 1808 and 1834 redoubts were square in shape.
