Maine is one of the oldest states in the country and many of us are pretty proud of that. We often refer to the state’s history in our articles and almost every time someone will reach out with their own personal story. But, a long history often comes with some bad along with all the good. From war to bone-chilling tales or terror, every state has its share of ghost stories. Today we’re telling you just a bit about Prospect, a town that many know to be one of the most haunted in the state. In case you’re looking for an adventure this year that is unlike any other, try exploring a contender for the scariest town in Maine and see if you have what it takes.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
