Aptucxet Trading Post may have the earliest remains of a Pilgrim building. The known facts present a fascinating story, not only of an antique building but also of Bourne's participation in 17th-century events.
The structure existing today is a replica erected on the original foundation which was archaeologically excavated in the 1920's, and is surrounded by 12 acres of recreational land.
