Properties for Sale in Fort Morgan, Gulf Shores, AL

Fort Morgan is an unincorporated community west of Gulf Highlands in Baldwin County, Alabama. The town is on the westernmost part of the barrier island that lines the mainland of the county. The community’s highlight is the Fort Morgan State Historic Site, a US Army fort constructed in 1813 defending the inland coast from possible British attack. The fort was also the site of a battle during the Civil War. The fort’s strategic site means the site has survived through the modern era with concrete fortifications replacing old brick structures. Nowadays, the fort has been converted into a tourist attraction that offers various activities for visitors. Notable activities include fishing, bird watching, pet-friendly areas, swimming, nature trails, and a war-themed escape room.

Residential real estate in Fort Morgan lines the land area directly east of the fort up to its border with Gulf Highlands. Waterfront properties south of Fort Morgan Road are oceanfront properties that serve as lovely beach houses with direct access to the ocean. These homes have a unique design with high wooden pillars on its lower level to protect the home from sudden flooding from storm surges. North of the island, you’ll find small ports available to most waterfront properties. Vacant lots are also plentiful in the area providing buyers looking to build a beach home from scratch. For information on properties available for sale on the island, please feel free to contact our team today.
