Just across the Penobscot River from Bucksport, the town of Prospect is home to the historic Fort Knox. Built between 1844 and 1869, it was the first fort in Maine built entirely of granite, most previous forts used wood, earth, and stone.
The Penobscot Bridge and Penobscot Narrows Observatory, is one of the coolest experiences you can have in the state of Maine. It is the first bridge observation tower in the United States and the tallest public bridge observatory in the entire world.
The tower reaches 420 feet into the air and allows visitors to view the bridge, the nearby Fort Knox State Historic Site, the Penobscot River, and Bay, with spectacular, mind-blowing 360-degree views. In fact, believe it or not, it is taller than the Statue of Liberty! The PNO is the tallest bridge observatory open to the public in the world. Visitors to the observatory ride Maine's fastest elevator all the way to the top.
