The Deadly History Of This Lighthouse In Maine Is Terrifying But True

From haunted B&Bs to eerie, rural, wooded backroads, Maine has no shortage of frightening stories. But, without a doubt, some of the scariest involve our maritime history. Our craggy coast has felled more than one ship and our lighthouses have watched over many stormy disasters. One of the most bone-chilling is the story of Boon Island.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
