|Fort Kent Maine
Fort Kent is a town in Aroostook County, incorporated on February 23, 1869 from D'Aigle and Fort Kent Plantations. It lies across the St. John River from the small town of Clair, in Madawaska County, New Brunswick, Canada.
A Fort, named for Governor Edward Kent, was constructed to assert Maine's authority and protect the settlers during the bloodless Aroostook War. The blockhouse remains today.
