People tend to check in during these times:
Construction began 1819, completed 1834. Large brick fort serviced the Civil War, Spanish-American War and both world wars. It played a major role during the Battle of Mobile Bay (1864). Museum details fort's history.
There needs to be some more work, interactive activities, plaques, Rangers to interact with visitors, but it is a nice fort to see.
A nice spot for some local and national history.
Beautiful Civil War era fort. Self-guided tour gives you plenty of time to wander around.
It was interesting ... And the Stairs !! They are a total wk-out
A wonderful place! The only thing I have to rant about is the God forsaken steps that go above my knees. But once you get up the steps you can see the bay & it's beautiful! The tunnels are amazing!
A piece of American history that shouldn't be missed. Take the tour (only offered a few times per day) to get some historical background from the very knowledgeable (in our tour) guide.
YOU CAN ALSO FISH FROM THE PIER OR LAUNCH YOUR BOAY NFUSH THE GULF.

About a mile from Sunset Properties. Take a few hours and explore Historic Fort Morgan!
A place of spectacular beauty and stirring history, Dauphin Island is home to Historic Fort Gaines, a nationally-significant fortress that played a pivotal role in the Civil War Battle of Mobile Bay.
Fort Morgan Historic Site is a great family-friendly attraction. Be sure to try the candlelight tours during the summer.
Great for kids to run around. My husband has fond childhood memories here.
