Fort Popham State Historic Site

Fort Popham is a semi-circular granite fort that was never
completed, though construction began in 1862 for use
during the Civil War. Modifications were made and the fort
was used again in the Spanish American War and in
World War 1. Historical records conclude that
fortifications, probably wooden, existed here and
protected the Kennebec settlements during the
Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. It was nearby
that the English made their first attempt to colonize New
England in 1607.
