NameThe Fort at Number 4
Address267 Springfield Road
Charlestown, NH 03603
DescriptionThe original stockade was built here in 1744. This replica is a soup-to-nuts education in Colonial dress, crafts, and daily life. In addition to the stockade are thirteen buildings and a watchtower that comprise the actual fortified village plus four outbuildings, including a blacksmith shop. This settlement was vital during the French and Indian War. At that time, Number 4 (later named Charlestown) was the most northerly New England settlement on the Connecticut River, providing a launching point for other settlements in future years. During the American Revolution, it also served as a mustering place for the Colonial militias. In addition to the fort, there are 63 buildings on Charlestown's Main Street listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings.
