Brief history of the state and its hauntings
The first European settlement in Maine was in 1604 by a French party and
there are many french influences within this state. As with all states
classic tales of Indian hauntings are common here, as well as some civil
war ghosts. Some ghost stories from this state are about the Pop-ham
Colony which did not survive the harsh Maine winters and the whole
Roanoke Colony was lost.
