Something for Everyone!

Located on Mobile Point, at the end of Scenic Fort Morgan Peninsula, the site has a diverse number of activities to make your vacation a memorable one.

Preceded by another fort, Fort Bowyer during the War of 1812, Fort Morgan 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.

More than just history, the site also has nature areas, and a boat launch for the outdoorsman to enjoy. Or, you can simply sit back and relax on our beaches and let the worries of the world slip away.

Whatever your reason for visiting,  make sure Fort Morgan is a part of your visit to Alabama's beautiful Gulf Coast!Marilyn Raney PhotoMarilyn Raney Photo
