Explore Fort Morgan and learn about its military history.

Fort Morgan State Historic Site is located at the end of the Fort Morgan Peninsula on Alabama's gulf coast. You can either take the Mobile Bay Ferry from Dauphin Island or drive State Highway 180 to get here. Fort Morgan was named after a Revolutionary War General named Daniel Morgan. This fort was constructed during the 1820s and played a major role during the Battle of Mobile Bay in the wake of the American Civil War. This historic site is open daily. Hours for the gift shop and museum are 9 am to 4 pm, and the grounds are open from 8 am to 5 pm.

Visitors will not only learn about the fort, but they can also relax on the beach, go fishing or boating, take a hike, or enjoy a picnic at this historic site. The fort and surrounding area allow leashed dogs, but they are not permitted anywhere past the old fisherman's wharf. Guests are welcome to explore part of the Alabama Coastal Birding Trail while they're here. The spring and fall migration seasons offer the best chances to see birds that are coming or going from the Gulf of Mexico.
