In the summer of 1724, a colonial British force traveled up the Kennebec River to the Indian village of Nanrantsouak in the Maine Woods to capture or kill a Jesuit priest living in the village and to eliminate French influence among the native people. Today, visitors can see a monument to Father Rasle on Old Point Road in Norridgewock.

This story is an excerpt from the Mountain Heritage Traveling Exhibit managed by the Maine Woods Consortium. The exhibit was produced by Mountain Counties Heritage, Inc. and designed by Insyt New Media. Funding was provided by the Federal Highway Administration and the Maine Department of Transportation through the National Scenic Byways Program through the Old Canada Road National Scenic Byway.
