The Colonial Pemaquid fort, historic site, and museum are well worth a visit; it's an extraordinary bit of early American history, with all the tangled web of native Americans, the French, the British, and the colonists, interwoven. Well worth a visit!

Climb the short tower for a wonderful view. The history museum is small but delightful and has a nice scavenger hunt for children. A certain times there are live history exhibits at the settlement examples.

After visiting the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, we popped into this place and were stunned to find that this place was considered "the Jamestown of the north." Walk inside the round stone tower to find a surprise and why the tower was built around "the surprise."...More

Although small, this has interesting artifacts within the fort and informative panels near many of the archaeological worksites.
