Information about Fort Richmond, Maine

The fort is actually considered to be the site of two forts. One that stood on the site as early as 1721 and another that stood on the site from 1740 to 1755. The forts provided protection from the French and hostile Native Americans. Currently, all that remains is an archaeological site where digging is ongoing to recover old artifacts.
