The remnants of an earthen works fort built by the British in the late 1700s to defend Castine against the US. It sits on the highest point in Castine. One building remains (or the foundation of it), giving some insight into what the structures looked like. It is much larger than Fort Madison. There is also the remains of a underground tunnel that I presume the British used to sneak in and out of the fort unnoticed. What I didn't see was an artists rendition of what the fort looked like in it's heyday, so I had a little trouble picturing things as they would'be been back then. My husband tells me there are renditions, so look one up on the web before you visit for a better idea. It was still an interesting place to visit.
