Worthwhile for history buffs and even small children to roam the grounds of an old Fort. Attendant had many great stories to regail.

This is a replica of the original fort. But sooooooo many artifacts have been found there!!! & Masny of them are on display in the visitors center. Beautiful displays!!! Soooooooooooo much cool stuff from Macon's beginning.

Ocmulgee Natl Monument is the draw here, but a block or two away is this Fort which has a rich history, run by a gentleman who really knows its history. It's free and not vast, but what is there reflects Macon's early days when Georgia was a colony.

I have lived in Macon most of my life and even lived by Fort Hawkins as a young child. But, I had never actually been inside the Fort. The history of the Fort and of Macon is just incredible and the staff is very knowledgeable!! We went after the grand opening of the visitor center, which is BEAUTIFUL!! It took us about 1 - 1 1/2 hours to go through it. It's worth a trip!!!

We visited here after the fantastic Ocmulugee park only to find it closed. Good vantage pint over Macon and we would have been fascinated to know more. Put more money into this tourist resource Macon City
