The Sinister Story Behind This Popular Maine Island Will Give You Chills

Casco Bay is home to some of the most beautiful and easily accessed islands in Maine. One of the most lovely is actually not an island at all. Mackworth Island is actually connected to Falmouth and is reached via a one-way road from the mainland. It’s a beautiful place, but it’s also home to one of the most unfortunate stories in Maine history.
