Built 1756. Showing Shikellamy Profile and Susquehanna River. Fort Augusta was erected by the English at the confluence of the north and west branches of the Susquehanna River, at what was then the Indian Village of Shamokin, now Sunbury. It was the outpost of Colonial civilization and a refuge for both white settlers and peaceful Indians. The replica is scaled to one-sixth of original dimensions.
