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, the Spanish American War, World War I and World War II. It showcases the evolution of seacoast fortifications and adaptations. The site, on the western tip of the island, also features natural areas, a gift shop and a boat launch. Make Fort Morgan part of your trip.
