Get Scared Silly At An Historic Maine Fort [VIDEO]
Maine has got to be one the best place on the planet to celebrate the Halloween season. There's is certainly no lack ghostly legends and creepy locations to terrify us.
Is it any wonder that the most well known Mainer uses the state as the locale where most of his nightmares novels originate? Yup, this is Stephen King country for sure.
And he knows what we know. Maine is a wicked old place with so much history. Our state is home to many historic buildings. So it would make sense that ghosts would choose these perfectly scary spots to hang around in and haunt, right?
There's a really spooky place in Prospect, Maine that, maybe like me, you visited on a school field trip when you were young. It's the spectacular Fort Knox and for the 20th year it's turned into house of horror.
I remember the hair standing up on my neck when I was a kid, as we explored dark cave like granite corridors not knowing what presence might be there too. There wasn't even a haunted house attraction going on at that time.
It was just a chilling feeling being there. So if this remarkable historic place gives us the heebie jeebies in general, it's gotta be the perfect place to get scared silly this Halloween.
