Fort Morgan sits on a spit of land at the mouth of Mobile Bay. From our house you have great views of both the Gulf of Mexico to the south and Mobile Bay to the north. You can also see the Mobile shipping channel - interesting to those who enjoy something a little unique. There is lots of history available if you visit the two Civil War-era forts that guard the mouth of Mobile Bay. A ferry trip across the bay takes you to Dauphin Island and Fort Gaines as well as the SeaLab - a fun trip with or without your car. Nearby enjoy an easy hike at Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge. Great shelling on an uncrowded beach. The public beach is just steps away from our house - less than a 200 foot walk! Where the street ends the sand begins. So much to do!
Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: We grew up near the beach and always dreamed of owning a house on the beach. We were thrilled when we found Fort Morgan, only 2 hours away from home (at the time). We purchased three lots and built our beach house 'On Dune Pond' the first year. We built 'Conch'ed Out' next and have been renting it out ever since. We have snowbirds that use it all winter and we enjoy repeat visits from many of our summer guests. Our daughter was nine years old when we first starting coming here, and she has grown to love it and share it with others through her photographs. We know your vacation here will be one you will always cherish! Chris & Sue Willoughby
Why the Owner Chose Homes, Single Family: Fort Morgan is the ideal vacation spot; close to many major cities but it feels very far away.
The beach is never crowded - we spent our first summer on the sand waiting for the crowds to show up...they never did! Shelling, swimming, walking, reading, napping - it's all right here.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Fort Morgan is rich in history, nature and man-made attractions. The fort was made famous during the Civil War battle for Mobile Bay. Union Admiral Farragut sent his ships past the fort and into a torpedo field. His famous cry of 'damn the torpedos, full speed ahead' saved the Union ships and launched an attack on Fort Morgan. Confederate Admiral Buchanan surrendered the fort after a three week battle. We are surrounded by beautiful Gulf Island National Seashore, and one of our favorite hikes is to Shell Beach. It's an easy, flat hike and at the end you are rewarded with a gorgeous stretch of beach covered with shells - don't miss it. The young and young at heart will love a morning trip to the zoo in Gulf Shores, made famous by Animal Planet's show 'The Little Zoo That Could'. It is a short 20 mile drive from our house. Fishing is easy - at the shore or 1/4 mile away to catch a charter boat for a day in the Bay or the gulf.
