Old Fort Western, a National Historic Landmark, was built in 1754. This is America’s oldest surviving wooden fort. Located at the head of navigation on the Kennebec River, Fort Western served as a fortified storehouse during the Seven Years War and hosted Benedict Arnold’s army as it marched against Quebec in 1775. The Fort’s Captain, James Howard, operated a store at the Fort during and after the American Revolution. His sons and their families occupied the old barracks through the early 19th century.
