Mission Statement

The Fort at No. 4 is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to perpetuating appreciation for the men, women, and children of the Connecticut River area during the 18th century. Our mission is:

“To professionally collect, preserve and authentically interpret both physical and intellectual resources which provide an educational understanding and appreciation for the 18th century heritage of the Connecticut River Valley.”

The Fort at No. 4 is not supported by any state or federal dollars.

We are an open air museum, dedicated to preserving the history of the fortified section of the plantation No.4 (later to be known as Charlestown, NH), and its influence and relationships with the surrounding areas.
