“The Fort Historic site grounds remain open 9am to 5pm daily. We expect to open the Fort interior and the Observatory to the public on May 1st although the Covid-19 epidemic precautions may change plans. We encourage visitors to get out, get some exercise (walk the dogs on a leash) and enjoy a visit to Fort Knox safely. Please do not visit if feeling ill, wash hands and practice social distancing. The Friends of Fort Knox wish wellness to you and your families as we get through these hard times. Call 207-469-6553 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for information.” Information taken from https://www.fortknoxmaine.com Visit for more information.
How can you tell spring has sprung and summer is coming? The wrought iron gate to Fort Knox is open and the observatory elevator is bringing visitors up 420 feet to look out of the surround of windows for gorgeous panoramic views of mid-coast Maine. See for yourself on May 1st as both the Fort Knox Historic Site and Penobscot Narrows Bridge Observatory (PNO) mark the Opening Day for the 2020 Season.
