Maine is a wonderful place to live and to visit. It’s mostly full of beautiful scenery, delicious restaurants and lots of things to do. But, that doesn’t mean all of our articles are happy. We’ve got a long history and that history isn’t always pretty. Today we’re talking about an abandoned mental asylum in Maine that’s seen better days.
