"To Protect, Preserve and Interpret Alabama's Historic Places."

Something for Everyone!

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

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. In 1946 the site was turned over to the State of Alabama as a historic site.

The grounds offer more than just history, the site also has nature areas,  a boat launch, picnic area, and beaches for visitors to enjoy. Whatever your reason for visiting,  make sure Fort Morgan State Historic Site  is a part of your visit to Alabama's beautiful Gulf Coast!  110 HWY 180 Gulf Shores AL.
