significance or just to say I have seen that, this is what it is about. Showing people that traveling does not always include an airplane ride to Disney, but it should always include quality time with your travel companions.

Stockton Springs is a quiet little town on US Route 1. In researching this town I have found that it holds some historical significance. In the heart of what is now Fort Point State Park used to lay Fort Pownall. This fort was created to drive out the remainder of the Native Americans in the area in the mid 1700's, but when the Revolutionary War broke out the British claimed the forts cannons and gun powder.
There are some other hidden gems about Stockton Springs, if you are walking through the woods along a deer path you may come across a waterfall or two, and you never know what wildlife you will come across. I have seen deer and moose in my backyard, and I have also seen quail just down the road from me. The animals love all the blueberry patches in the area.
