Haunted Places in Gulf Shores: Fort Morgan
Attention all paranormal activity enthusiasts! There are several haunted places in Alabama, but some of the most well known are located in Gulf Shores. Fort Morgan has a rich haunted history, which dates all the way back to the Civil War. Legend has it, Fort Morgan endured heavy fire during the Battle of Mobile Bay. Locals and visitors alike claim to hear the spirits of soldiers crying through the night. People have also allegedly seen female ghosts “searching for justice,” after passing away in the fort. If you’re up for a frightful adventure, visit Fort Morgan and keep your eyes peeled for any supernatural shapes or shadows.
