Bar Harbor Ghost Tour
As darkness overtakes Bar Harbor, a group of travelers huddle outside the Ledgelawn mansion. Inside, their guide informs them, several centuries worth of spirits patrol the halls, unable to reach the next life due to unresolved earthly business or tragedy. The tour guests shiver, recalling the other stories they've heard that night. One was about a woman whose search for her husband has continued beyond her death. Another described the hauntings of children trapped between worlds. Each legend has a distinct voice, crafted from a mix of folklore, documented history, and post-it notes found floating in front of abandoned fridges. To add authenticity to their storytelling, the guides don costumes for the one-mile trip, which reaches its eerie conclusion in the center of town.
