When most people consider Maine, they think of coastal towns and lobster rolls. We love that this image is a fairly accurate description of what it’s like to spend time here, but there are also plenty of darker things if you enjoy the macabre! Haunted theaters and scary side streets are just a few of the things that Maine ghost stories are made of, but don’t let these things scare you too much. There’s plenty to enjoy despite the overlap and a visit to this town proves it!

Have you been to Skowhegan? What are some of your favorite things to do here? Let us know in the comments!

Skowhegan isn’t the only spooky town in Maine. There are 3 haunted cemeteries within the small town of Bucksport, Maine alone and that’s not an exaggeration!
