We enjoyed touring this beautiful Revoluntionary War fort. First you see a video then self-tour. A small museum then outside tour. A nice gift shop.

I attended the 2015 Georgia State Volunteer day at Fort Morris on Sept 26th. It was a great event and we did a good bit of work towards helping the site out. Maintenance on the blacksmith shop and the grounds as well as constructing the new Butterfly pollination garden. The site provided a good lunch, drinks all day and a lucky volunteer received a state parks yearly pass. Come check the site out with its great views of St Catherines sound and the sea breezes or come to one of their regular historic events. You will be happy you did!

My husband and I have ventured out from our house in all directions and found this site to be more interesting when the volunteers dress up in period clothes and educate us on life back then. My favorite time is the Colonial Christmas where at the end of the evening we are treated to traditional dishes and brew. Bonfire and stories. Music, just a wonderful place to be and around people who appreciate all the trouble that the volunteers go through each year. I will be back this year too. Bring a jacket, it got pretty cold last year!

There isn't much to see, but what is there is interesting. We took our time, starting with a historical video and then the walking tour. That the town of Sunbury has been lost to history is fascinating! The site manager is very friendly, and the artifacts in the museum are very interesting.

Fort Morris was very enjoyable for us. The staff is very knowledgeable of the history of the site and eager to explain it to visitors. There isn't much left of the fort but the view from the picnic table outside the fort is worth the price of admission and the nature trail is very peaceful. I can now imagine what a wonderful place Sunbury must have been
