This is a must visit if you are in the Savannah area. Sadly, this fort is not owned by the National Parks Service, which means it is all privately run. Everyday they shoot off a cannon and go through all the procedures involved. We also...More
Site has been a fort since Revolutionary War times. Brick fort is from War of 1812 and has been nicely restored. Volunteers do a reenactment twice a day including live fire of a canon. School age children will particularly enjoy being included in the firing....More
We had a lovely stop at Old Jackson Fort. We were keen on learning more about the American Civil War. We observed a girl scout troop earning badges by participating in the firing of the cannon. The #Sargent First Class" guide was a great storyteller...More
On our last day in Savannah a few hours before our flight home, my husband the history buff came here to visit. He walked around the fort and saw the quarters where they slept, the brig, etc. The best part was the reenactment which included...More
The visit to Old Fort Jackson is not one of the overhyped attractions of the Savannah area. However, the buildings and artefacts on display evoke a period of military developments in the 18th and 19th centuries. The undoubted highlight is the informative show put on...More
If you love history as I do, you cannot miss this place. They do a fantastic job with the kids in demonstrating the use of the cannon. My kids are older and loved it, but I saw some small children that were having a blast.

It’s fairly close to the historic section of Savannah. It’s probably a 10-15 minute drive, mostly along the same road. Signage could be a bit better so keep your eyes out. Once you turn left off the main road, the fort is about a 2 minute drive. The fort sits right on the river. Fort Pulaski is about another 10-15 minute drive on the same main road if you turn left as you exit Fort Jackson.
