Preceded by another fort, Fort Bowyer during the War of 1812, Historic Fort Morgan Alabama is a Third System masonry fort built between 1819 and 1833. Standing guard where the bay meets the Gulf of Mexico, the fort played a significant role in the Battle of Mobile Bay in August 1864. Used intermittently through the Spanish American War, World War I and World War II, the site showcases the evolution of seacoast fortifications and adaptations made by the U.S Army for the defense of the Country.

If you enjoy history, you’ll love the depth and preservation at the Fort Morgan State Historic site, including guided tours in peak seasons such as June and July, and year round access to enjoy self guided tours. The museum offers an array of historical artifacts relevant to the span of history at the fort, as well as full displays sharing insight into the life of those who manned the fort at various times.
