Description:

The Colonial Pemaquid State Historic Site (Ft. William Henry / Ft. Frederick 2) is open from 9:00 a.m. to sunset daily from Memorial Day to Labor Day. A fee is charged. Visitors may continue to enjoy the park during the off season by parking outside the gate and walking in during these same hours. Please be aware that facilities are closed during the off season.

One of northern New England's earliest communities, rich in archeological history, Colonial Pemaquid State Historic Site is a place not to be missed during a visit to Midcoast Maine. Bureau of Parks and Lands staff host interpretive tours, and teach visitors about the native people who camped on this once-remote peninsula that evolved into a rough, frontier settlement dating back to the mid-1620s. Children enjoy a trip to the museum that houses artifacts unearthed from the grounds. Exotic china patterns, a 400 year old trunk, a rare, German Bellarmine jug and various tools of the day are on display to paint a picture of what life in the village was like.
