Each Tuesday evening in June and July, period-clad re-enactors will guide you through Fort Morgan. Some of these folks will speak directly to you, while others will allow you to eavesdrop on “private” conversations about life in 1861. You’ll learn facts about the fort and get a glimpse into the lives of those who lived and soldiered there.
The one-hour tours begin at 7:00 p.m. each Tuesday, weather permitting. In keeping with the realistic portrayal of the era, candlelight will be used to illuminate the fort; however, you are welcome to bring flashlights to assist your return to your vehicle after the tour. Another suggestion is mosquito spray, as the warmer weather will certainly bring them out. And yes, those insects are a realistic part of the tour!
Experience this Southeastern Tourism Society Top 20 Event and you’ll see why it has received such a well-deserved designation. Learn a little history, enjoy some family time, and take part in a popular presentation.
You’ll find Fort Morgan State Historical Site at the west end of Fort Morgan Road in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Tickets are $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and $3 for children 7 and older. For more information or to check on a possible weather cancellation, call 251-540-5257.
