10 Shocking Things You Had No Idea Happened In Maine

At this point, I’m rarely shocked when I hear news of something strange happening in Maine. We are, after all, the state where an entire meteor lit up the night sky and crashed into a yet-to-be-determined location near Portland. We are also the home of an entire museum dedicated to umbrella covers, a rock that inexplicably teeters over the edge of a cliff and an entire scale model of the solar system. It takes quite a bit to shock me. But, I did recently learn about a few things that have happened here in Maine that were new to me. I’ve listed them here to see if I can shock any of you. Read on for a few things that you had no idea happened in Maine.
