A Martello tower is a small circular defensive fort of a few stories high. They were built in several countries during the 19th Century.

Carleton Martello Tower is one of nine surviving Martello towers in Canada, and was built to defend Saint John during the War of 1812 against American overland invasion. Construction started in 1813 but was not complete until 1815, after the war ended. It was 50 feet across and 30 feet tall. It went through many renovations and improvements over the years, including the addition of a two story concrete structure on top of the tower in 1941 for World War II.
