6 chilling tales from Aroostook County

Ghostly apparitions, a supernatural logger and buried gold — a horror movie? Nope. They’re all a part of Aroostook County’s chilling lore.

County native Dick Curless’ well-known track “Tombstone Each Mile” describes ghostly encounters within the Haynesville woods. Then there’s the story of three males who recounted being kidnapped within the wilds of Allagash.

However there are different eerie echoes in The County. Many are creepy outdated tales, excellent to be advised round campfires. Others might make you look over your shoulder on a darkish night time.
