(1821-1865)

The Citadel, a large ten sided brick and wood structure, once dominated the Fort's parade ground. Capable of housing 400 soldiers, it served as a defensive barracks for the Fort's garrison.

During the Union bombardment of Fort Morgan on August 22nd, 1864 the Citadel roof caught fire and burned out of control. Following the Civil War the structure's gutted ruins were demolished.
