Facility:Colonial Pemaquid
Description:A National Historic Landmark, owned by the State of Maine, where you will find more than a wonderful view of the Atlantic Ocean, Pemaquid Harbor, and Johns Bay. Colonial Pemaquid is situated on a point of land at the mouth of the Pemaquid River in the town of Bristol. Extensive archaeological excavations have unearthed 14 foundations of 17th- and 18th-century structures and the officers' quarters for Fort William Henry and Fort Frederick. A museum displays hundreds of artifacts found on the site, dating from prehistoric times through the colonial period. Musket balls, coins, pottery, and early hardware are among items of interest. The site includes a reconstruction of Fort William Henry, which also houses museum exhibits.
