Fort Edgecomb State Historic Site occupies 3 acres on the s. end of Davis Island, just s. off US 1. An 1808-09 octagonal wooden blockhouse built of hand-hewn timbers for the War of 1812 is one of the best-preserved of its kind in North America and offers a skillfully made example of the construction methods of the period. Living-history encampments featuring demonstrations of cooking, sewing and Colonial games take place June through August. Informational panels are available.
Guided tours are available. Picnicking is permitted.
