The Coastal Heritage Society will break ground on the new orientation building for Old Fort Jackson on July 3.
"The new building will enable the fort to relocate modern intrusions from within the existing structure and will also provide additional visitor amenities in a comfortable air-controlled space," said a spokesperson from the Coastal Heritage Society.
A decade in the making, the building's construction was allocated by SPLOST and will enhance the experience at the site.
Old Fort Jackson protected Savannah and Georgia from 1808 through the end of the Civil War. It is the oldest standing brick fortification in the state and one of Georgia's oldest treasures.
