"Georgia's Oldest Standing Brick Fort"

Originally an earthen fort established during the Revolutionary War, Old Fort Jackson's brick structure was built in 1808, and was further developed between 1845 and 1860. The fort sits on the bank of the Savannah River and is surrounded by a moat. Visitors may explore the tunnel-like passageways that used to house soldiers and store ammunition and supplies. The moated forts overhead and interior cannons are the structure's prime attractions. The cannons are fired during the summer months when the site gets its maximum turnout of spectators.
