Hidden by the shore of the northern end of Lauttasaari are several massive constructions that look like bunkers and fortifications. They are leftovers of constructions raised during the Crimean War around the year 1855.

Also later on Lauttasaari did have some strategic importance during warfare and there are eroded leftovers of a anti-aircraft cannon to be found elsewhere on the island.
