Colonial Pemaquid State Historic Site (Ft. William Henry)

Lobster boat races, as seen from the top of the tower at Ft. William Henry.

Still a battleground today

The shores surrounding Ft. William Henry continue to see battle even today, only these days folks fight over who has the fastest boat in the lobster boat races each summer.  This beautiful site is rich in history, including interpretive panels and tours, a museum, and roof-top view from the fort.  Open year round.
