Fort Halifax, built in 1754, was the oldest blockhouse in the United States before it was destroyed during the flood of 1987. Today, the fort bears the designation as a National Historic Landmark. A reconstructed blockhouse, which incorporates many timbers from the 1754 blockhouse, stands on the fort’s original site at the confluence of the Kennebec and Sebasticook Rivers in Winslow.
