Fort Morris is an earthen fort on the edge of the marsh. The nearby town of Sunbury was a ghost town for much of the last two centuries, but rivaled Savannah at one time and was recognized by the British as being important, so much so they burned when they left. The fort is in great shape and you can clearly make out important features. The area also features a small museum that shows many artifacts from that revolutionary and 1812 period. This was a great little side adventure and one that I would recommend.

I had just finished the midway museum and this was close and a place to get out and walk around on a nice November day. The history is amazing here. There really isn't much left except for the berms but still was very good. Nature trails around were good to get out and stretch.

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!
