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.
