Maine has got to be one the best places 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 nightmare novels originate? Yup, this is Stephen King country for sure.

Stephen King knows what we know. Maine is a wicked old place. Our state is home to many historic landmarks. So it makes sense to us that ghosts would choose these perfectly scary spots to hang around in and haunt.

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.

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 during Halloween season.

Unfortunately, since we still can't have large gatherings due to Covid 19, there will be no Fright at the Fort this year.

Let's instead feel the chills with this great video and keep our fingers crossed for a real good scare there in 2021.
