Fort Benjamin Hawkins - Review

Built around 1806, Fort Benjamin Hawkins or as it is popularly called Fort Hawkins, was a very important historical structure for Creek Nation. It was because of this very fort that the city of Macon developed and then gained such considerable importance as an economic, military and political landmark. The Fort is considered to be an icon of Macon and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Nearby areas have provided a lot of excavations and given a much deeper insight into the interaction between Native Americans and the Europeans who landed here.

  • Didn’t know what to expect when we got here, but thanks to our lovely tour guide we learned the rich history of Macon and Fort Hawkins place in it. One day they’ll get the grant they need to reach the full Potential of what that place deserves. By the way there’s a pool!

  • James,x birthday party with his roommate,s.

  • Macon is Rich with history, and Fort Hawkins is the birthplace of Macon. The little​ museum is full of artifacts discovered at the site and a mural of an 1812 battle makes a great photo background. The 3-story blockhouse is an exact replica and houses more artifacts and history with amazing views from the open windows. There are events throughout the year (check their Facebook page), including 4th of July and Easter. This Historic site is free to the public, but donations are greatly appreciated.

  • Went to the Ocmulgee Mounds nearby and decided we would drop by here too. We didn't do our research and didn't know it wasn't open. But, by the looks of it, it looks very informative and well maintained.

  • Great place to bring your kids
