A Little Bit Of History in DownEast Maine

Did you know that Machiasport, Maine was the site of the one of the first naval battles of the American revolutionary war? It was fought off-shore from Fort O’Brien in Machiasport between the citizens of Machiasport and the British ship, the Margaretta.

The 1775 battle resulted in one death, several woundings and several residents captured.

The fort is now a park with rolling ‘bunkers’ and a signature cannon — a great little stop to visit history.

Worth a stop and you can find it open during daylight hours next door to the elementary school.
