The cove of Queenstown's harbor is protected by a bend of the mouth of the Chester River. Established in 1707 as "Queen Anne's Town," it became an important-enough port to be attacked by the British during the War of 1812. An erstwhile fishermen's community, it's worth a quick visit—drive along its north-side water's edge and through town, where there's a pretty, central square, a coffee shop, and a few good restaurants. Note the statue in the center of the square of Queen Anne of England that was dedicated by Princess Anne.
