Built in 1754, Old Fort Western is New England’s oldest surviving wooden fort. It is a reminder of the great contest of cultures that dominated the region 250 years ago. The fort guarded the head of navigation on the Kennebec in the 1750s and 60s. In 1775, Benedict Arnold used the fort site as a staging point for his assault on Quebec during the American Revolution.
