Welcome to Winslow

     Located on the East bank of the Kennebec River across the bridge from Waterville, Winslow is a town rich in history and pride. Settlers arrived in the early 1700's and built their homes around the protective Fort Halifax on the confluence of the Sebasticook and Kennebec Rivers, major routes in transporting food, goods, and more settlers. The Winslow Fort Halifax Blockhouse, formerly the nation's oldest wooden structure of it's type, was rebuilt from some of the timbers of the original blockhouse that were swept down the Kennebec River by raging flood waters on April 1,1987.
