Such a beautiful view of the river and surrounding marshes


There is not much to SEE at this National Monument. Today the area is primarily an active archeological site and a training ground for the local school children to hone their skills at discovering the treasures hidden beneath the surface.

A small section of the fort and the foundations of some homes and public buildings is all that remains to be SEEN here. After being neglected for over 100 years under private ownership, the National Park Service has done a fantastic job of preserving the site and offers an informative documentary film highlighting the history of this southern Georgia settlement.

  1. Any idea if they let the kids keep something if they find it?

      No they don't get to keep it! It's all part of their education and part of that is knowing you are not allowed to remove anything from a National Park site.

      The reason I know this is because I asked the ranger the same question.
