Fort McClary State Historic Site

X

For more than 275 years, a fort has protected the approaches to the Piscataqua River at the southern gateway to Kittery. The most recent of these is Fort McClary, named for New Hampshire native Major Andrew McClary, who died at the Revolutionary War's Battle of Bunker Hill. Fort McClary is one of the state's most important historic forts. It demonstrates how military architecture and technology changed over the centuries.

The buildings on the site are from different periods. This shows how it was upgraded and modified to meet new defensive needs. The fort was manned during five wars: The Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Civil War, Spanish-American War, and World War I. Yet like most other Maine forts, it saw little conflict. For more information, contact the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands.
