How the early settlers came to the area and survived their time here was interesting as was the castle built around a rock. Worth a visit but not much to see to make it exciting.

The Colonial Pemaquid fort, historic site, and museum are well worth a visit; it's an extraordinary bit of early American history, with all the tangled web of native Americans, the French, the British, and the colonists, interwoven. Well worth a visit!
