Fort Morgan Historic Site and Museum

Construction on Fort Morgan began in 1819 and was completed in 1834, the fort remained active during four wars - the Civil War, the Spanish-American War, and World Wars I and II. Fort Morgan is most famous for its role in the Civil War Battle of Mobile Bay. Union Admiral David Farragut damned the torpedoes and went full speed ahead to win the battle. The massive fort contains over 40 million bricks and pays tribute to the skilled masons that constructed the facility.Fort Morgan is a historic masonry star fort at the mouth of Mobile Bay, some scholars regard it as "one of the finest examples of military architecture in the New World."

Since 1834 Fort Morgan, a National Historic Landmark, has stood as the guardian of Mobile Bay; the fort is located 22 miles west of Gulf Shores on the Alabama Coast.

Today Fort Morgan features an active living history program explaining the details of all the different military periods; there is also an annual event commemorating the Battle of Mobile Bay.A visit to the fort is a great way to spend the afternoon and learn of the local history.
