In 1607, under the leadership of George Popham, about a hundred men and boys sailed from England and landed at the mouth of what is now known as the Kennebec River, where they built a fort and a few other buildings. The colony disbanded about a year later. Sagadahoc is an Abenaki word meaning "river mouth."
