Most People Have No Idea This Underwater City In Maine Even Exists

Maine’s history just might be the most interesting in the country. From legendary war generals to well-known authors to poets that loved our state as we love it today, there’s a lot to learn about Maine. The people who have come before us have helped not only shape this state, but also shape the people we are as Mainers. It’s important to remember this history, even when it’s not happy. The story of this underwater city is a perfect example.
