Great views of Kittery Maine coast. Well maintained historical sight. Kids and myself enjoyed walking through the fort, armory building, and checking out the cannons.

Just by luck, we just happened by this attraction. Historical fort along the coast of Maine. Dates back to the 18th century. One original building still stands. Beautiful scenic view. Entry fee is on honor system and less than $5, senior fee is $2.
