Augusta is the capital of the U.S. state of Maine and the county seat of Kennebec County.
The city’s population was 19,136 at the 2010 census, making it the third-smallest state capital (after Montpelier, Vermont and Pierre, South Dakota) and the ninth-largest city in Maine. Located on the Kennebec River at the head of tide, Augusta is home to the University of Maine at Augusta. Augusta is also the principal city in the Augusta-Waterville, ME Micropolitan Statistical Area.
Long before Europeans came up the Kennebec River to the “head of the tide,” Algonquian-speaking Indians, considered Wabanaki or “People of the Dawn,” were already here. As early as1607, the area was explored by English settlers from the short-lived Sagadahoc or Popham Colony at the river’s mouth.
Representatives of Plymouth Colony were the first English to actually live here. In 1625, on a river expedition to find a place to trade agricultural products for Indian furs, Plymouth pilgrims chose the east shore for their “House at Kennebeck.” The post, probably built in 1628, was operated by the original traders and, later, by Plymouth Company with varying degrees of success, until it was abandoned some time between 1669 and 1676.
There were French as well as English influences here in the 17th and 18th centuries. In 1646, a Jesuit priest, Gabriel Dreuillettes, visited “an English settlement named Kinibeki.”and established a mission nearby for the Kennebec natives. It was then that the term “Cushnoc,”(“Coussinoc” or “Kouissnoc”) first appeared in reference to the Plymouth trading post.
After years of conflict involving the French, Indians, and English and several decades during which Kennebec settlements were deserted, the Kennebec Proprietors, successors to the Plymouth Company, erected Fort Western near the Cushnoc site. Located below the falls at the head of navigation, the fort was intended as a supply depot for Fort Halifax , 17 miles upriver. The proprietors also initiated efforts to settle the region. When military staffing was no longer needed, Captain James Howard, who had commanded the fort, stayed on as the first permanent settler. The fort’s main building served as a residence and a store.

Day’s Jewelers was founded in 1914 by Captain Harry Davidson, whose ill health forced him to abandon a life at sea. The first Day’s was a small pawn shop/auction center located in the Old Port District of Portland, Maine. Shortly thereafter, Captain Davidson was joined in the business by his three sons Sidney, David and Herman. During the ensuing 30 years, the Davidson brothers opened 21 Day’s stores throughout northern New England. Day’s quickly became one of the most formidable jewelry store chains on the East Coast.
