Historic Fort Gaines
Tips from Dauphin Island Beach Rentals:
Refresh your knowledge of the Civil War when you visit. A blacksmith and cannon firing demonstration is fascinating and worth the time to see. Bring your camera for pictures. The museum section is interesting with hand written letters, pictures and different memorabilia covering the history of Dauphin Island. A short distance away is the Dauphin Island Sea Lab Estuarium.
