Kennebec County is home to Augusta, capital of Maine. Long before Europeans came up the Kennebec River to the "head of the tide", Algonquian-speaking Indians, considered Wabanaki or "People of the Dawn", were already here. As early as 1607, the area was explored by English settlers from the short-lived Sagadahoc or Popham Colony at the river's mouth.
Representatives of Plymouth Colony were the first English to actually live here. In 1625, on a river expedition to find a place to trade agricultural products for Indian furs, Plymouth pilgrims chose the east shore for their "House at Kennebeck."
Old Fort Western, located at the head of the Kennebec River, dates back more than 250 years. It is the oldest and most historic wooden fort in New England.
The scenic Kennebec River Rail Trail runs between Augusta and Gardiner. The Pine Tree State Arboretum provides an abundance of recreational activities and vistors can enjoy views of Kennebec Valley.
