|Satellite view showing Augusta, capital city of the State of Maine and the easternmost state capital in the United States.
The city is located in the New England region in the southwestern portion of Maine, on the Kennebec River.
In 1754 in the time of the French and Indian War, a palisade fort was built at the head of navigation of the Kennebec River, adjacent to Cushnoc, to protect English villages in the region and to promote settlement in the area. The British colonial outpost was named Fort Western. Cushnoc was incorporated in 1771 and the name changed to Augusta. Maine, originally an exclave of Massachusetts became a state in 1820 and Augusta was its designated capital.
