This was an impulsive stop after visiting Ocmulgee Mounds. The top of Fort Hawkins was visible from the Great Temple Mound. The newly opened visitor center has an impressive collection of artifacts:
Native American, Military, geological, and taxidermy. Very kind and well informed volunteers were patient with our energetic and curious child. They encouraged his questions. This site is open only on weekends, is run by volunteers and donations. Fort Hawkins is worth visiting!
