Small towns tend to be built with a close sense of community and in Maine, we tend to have quite a bit of small towns. Everyone knows your name and people are willing to lend a helping hand when needed. Who can forget the terrible ice storm of 1998, we certainly saw people offering up helping hands to one another. Then again if you spend enough time in any small town and it won’t take long for dark secrets to be revealed. Sinister tales of a terrifying past are bound to come up from time to time.
