Fort Kent

Location: Fort Kent, Maine
Year Built: 1839

Fort Kent sits along Fish River in Northern Maine. This iconic blockhouse of hand-hewn cedar timbers with overhanging second story was built circa 1838 and was named after Governor Edward Kent. Fort Kent is the last that remains of several forts built along the Saint John River by the state of Maine.

BCA developed measured drawings adhering to the Historic American Building Survey standards. Traditional manual measurement techniques were employed to capture all elements of the building detailing dimensions, joinery, profiles, loopholes, etc. BCA translated field sketches into Auto CAD Drawings which were then printed to vellum for submission to the National Park Service.
