Fort Western (1754) National Historic Landmark & Living History Museum is America's oldest surviving wooden French & Indian War era garrison in North America illuminating 300 years of Maine and New England History.

Experience the past through public tours of the fort, store and house guided by historic interpreters in period dress.  Hands-on educational programs are available for students of all ages, designed to immerse them in 18th century life by engaging all the senses.
