The Tunnels of Mobile Point's Fort Morgan


In 1813, Mobile Point, Alabama became the location of Fort Bowyer. The United States Army fort was built to protect the country from a British attack. In 1819, just six years later, construction of Fort Morgan was started on the same site. Because of its remote location on Mobile Bay, Fort Morgan was not completed until 1834. Today, the National Historic Landmark is open for touring.

What historic sites have you enjoyed visiting?

Who knows when (or if) we'll ever be back to Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, Alabama. Since we are all about using our few short years on earth to see and learn about as much of the world as possible, even a beach trip can include some history. A rainy day at the beach turned out to be a good day for a day trip to explore Fort Morgan - just over 20 miles to the west.

Do you ever visit historic sites when you vacation?
