The fort is one of the few remaining wooden forts in the US. It was built to be a supply depot during the French & Indian War. After the war, the captain of the garrison bought it and kept it up as a general store. It's location was important as supplies were delivered up and down the river. In 1775, the fort, although deactivated, helped resupply Patriot soldiers on their way to attack Quebec City. It was fascinating hearing about the history of the fort and looking around. They keep it in good condition.

While passing through Augusta to get to the coast, I was too early to take the tour, but Fort Western's exterior is remarkable and very historic, seeing that it's the oldest wooden garrison building in the country.

Looked around, school kids being toured. No one spoke to us, looked around and left. Not much to see...

This fort was built in the 1700s next to the river and it looks now like it did back then. There are lots of folks here dressed up in period clothing, including soldiers, who help show what a soldier's life was like in the camp back in the day. They give guided tours, and our tour guide was very enthusiastic. I learned a lot of interesting history on the tour through the fort grounds and inside the building, though the tour did go on a little long. There is a gift shop here, and a parking lot next to it. The place also holds a variety of activities.

Tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. The history of the activity at the fort was very interesting. The antique furnishings of the actual occupants were a nice segway into the period in the 18th century. Well worth the visit.
