Fort Hawkins Master Plan Unveiled
March, 2008, Macon, Georgia
The Fort Hawkins Commission, led by Chairman Marty Willett, have published their Master Plan for the future of Fort Hawkins. Willett’s ambitious$3.5 million dollar stewardship plan addresses the needs for the fort and should result in a wonderful heritage tourist attraction for Macon and central Georgia. The LAMAR Institute is delighted to have been a part of this effort and we look forward to continued participation in bringing this strategically important United States Army post, circa 1806-1819, back to life through historical archaeology.
