Colonial Pemaquid State Historic Site

Midcoast Maine

If you or your kids are into history, make sure to pop by this state park, where experts have rebuilt the Fort William Henry (c 1692), and an on-site museum exhibits a trove of archaeological treasures: coins, pottery, musket balls and the like. There's also a diorama of an indigenous Pemaquid village and gravestones that date from the early 1700s. It's a quiet, windblown spot that's great to poke around and soak up some history.
