Fort Kent State Historic Site
Fort Kent State Historic Site

Fort Kent served as Maine's northern outpost during the so-called Aroostook War of the 1830s. The "war," which ended without warfare, was a dispute between the United States and Great Britain regarding the border separating Maine and Canada. Fort Kent includes a wooden blockhouse, built in 1839, that once housed officers. Today, it welcomes visitors who come to explore the uppermost reaches of Maine. For more information, contact the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands.
