  • The newest addition is a cannon found just recently during a dredging operation in the Cape Fear that may have come off a pirate ship! Preliminary dating is estimating it around the early 1700's! Allo...  more »

  • The staff is very knowledgeable and the short museum quite informative. They recommend you watch the fifteen minute video before taking your first tour and I'm so glad I took that recommendation. It definitely helps give you a feel for how the grounds looked before they were mostly excavated foundations. The highlight for me was the walk. The views of the river along that end of the walking path are beautiful and the walk was long enough for my twins to fall asleep in their stroller. Win/Win!
  • This is a quaint little historical site. It is a small museum, remnants of old buildings, and the shell of an old church perfect for photos. While out on the walking trail, we spotted an archaeological dig. As we walked closer, we were invited to come check it out and given a personal tour by the woman in charge.
  • The drive up to the fort is great for birders. There is also several locations to see alligators. The fort was great to walk around well
  • Beautifully situated along the Cape Fear River, the sight of both a colonial town and church, Brunswick Town is also important for its location as Fort Anderson where a battle was fought in the Civil War. The area is scenic, and fun to explore with picnic tables and and a visitors center.
  • Awesome place lots of history the tour guides are great give you lots of info.very passionate about place
