With a history as long as Maine’s there are quite a few stories dating back centuries. While some are good (hooray for the founding of the state!) some are not quite as nice. An example is the killing of Native American Chief Taukolexis at Fort William Henry at Colonial Pemaquid State Historic Site in Bristol.

Colonial Pemaquid State Historic Site is located at Huddle Rd in New Harbor, Maine. They’re open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
