You notice something out of the corner of your eye, but when you turn to look, nothing is there. Despite the warmth of the summer night, you feel a breath on the back of your neck, making you shiver.

You wake up in the middle of the night, have no memory of what you were dreaming about, and are still anxious and unsettled in your own bed. You are feeling the eerie energy of haunted places in Maine that have sent chills down generations of people’s spines.

Eastern State Penitentiary, founded in 1829, served as a prison until 1971. Because of its massive size, it became known as one of America’s most humane and modern prisons.

Overcrowding, however, resulted in poor conditions within E.S.P. by 1940, including chipping paint and bed bug infestations, among other things.

Main Street in Brunswick is one of New England’s most haunted places. The Joshua L. Chamberlain Museum & Visitors Center honours a local Civil War hero.

The museum is housed in his home and contains some of his personal belongings and mementos, as well as local history and family documents.

Employees, visitors, tour guides, and even former Chamberlain family members have reported seeing ghosts.

Lights turn on and off on their own, and doors open and close on their own. There are cold spots, footsteps heard when no one else is around, and voices calling from empty rooms.

Other unusual occurrences include objects being thrown or falling off shelves, as well as glass doors breaking for no apparent reason!
