The Storer Garrison State Historic Site is a historic site in Wells, Maine. It has quite a colorful past that is less documented and told of online.

Tracing its roots back to the late 1600s, the Storer Garrison State Historic Site was created as a means to protect British colonial settlers from the attacks of hostile Native American tribes and their French enemies. The garrison was just mostly a house then, owned by Joseph Storer, chosen for being the most substantial structure in the village. Luckily, the soldiers and residents were enough to defend the site and the ships that were at the site.

A plaque marker was planted at the Storer Garrison State Historic Site in 1904. It was made by artist William E. Barry of Kennebunk.
