History

The Castine peninsula appears on a 1612 chart submitted to Henry IV of France Henry IV of France by Samuel de Champlain, who called it the Pentagoët Peninsula. Pentagoët was in 1674 and 1676 attacked and briefly held by the Dutch, who turned the fort's cannon on its own walls and destroyed most of it after the second siege. Few places in New England have had a more tumultuous history than Castine -- which proclaims itself the "battle line of four nations." Its commanding position at the mouth of the Penobscot River, a lucrative source of fur trading and timber, as well as a major transportation route into the interior, made the peninsula occupied by the present-day town of Castine of particular interest to European powers in the 17th-century. The Americans eventually abandoned the fight and retreated up the Penobscot River, destroying their entire fleet along the way to keep it out of British hands. The failed Penobscot Expedition, which cost the revolutionaries eight million dollars, proved to be the greatest United States Navy naval defeat until Pearl Harbor in 1941.
