This Maine Fort Is Among The Most Haunted Places In The Nation

With a history as long as Maine’s there are quite a few stories dating back centuries. While some are good (hooray for the founding of the state!) some are not quite as nice. An example is the killing of Native American Chief Taukolexis at Fort William Henry at Colonial Pemaquid State Historic Site in Bristol.

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/

Colonial Pemaquid State Historic Site is located at Huddle Rd in New Harbor, Maine. They’re open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
