While in Maine this summer we visited the other Pilgrim trading post in the area – Penobscot, or Fort Pentagoet, as the French fort built on the same site was named. The trading post was named after the massive Penobscot Bay, fed by the Penobscot River.

The site of the trading post
Although nothing of the fort is left above ground, it has a beautiful view of the islands and water
The site is in the backyard of this small Catholic church
This commemorative sign has been on the site for many years, despite some of the information being completely wrong
The only possible trace I notice of the fort was this rock in the grass. Could it be part of the fort, which was excavated and reburied?
