The sign with the monument in the background
So I have time on my hands theese days and I went for a drive to Bucksport to see the The Witches Boot.  Its not very far from where I live so I though hey why not I like wierd stuff like this anyway.  I pulled into the little parking area and headedup the ramp to check it out.  Unfortunatley one of the plaques has been knocked over my quess is due to all the snowfall this winter but the monument itself isnt going anywhere and the stain isnt either.  A stain in the form of a boot is the curse kinda silly untill you hear the story.  Way back when supposedly Jonathan Buck sentenced an innocent woman to death and when he did she cursed him (and some girls wonder why people think they are vindictive) Just kidding!  Anyway the curse was she proclaimed she was innocent and that he knew it and she would be back to dance on his grave.
Its knocked over but this is the plaque that sits next to the monument
  Now this isnt his grave its just a monument I quess the grave is in another part of the cemetary I dont know its only what Ive heard and you cant enter the cemetary to check it out.  To add to the strangeness of it a heart shaped stain had formed on the monument as well.  Now the stain has had many attempts at it being removed and it just keeps coming back so maybee it is a real curse who knows.  Its fun to go look at if your in the area.  Go check out some more nearby attractions though or youll probably be dissapointed.  Some things near by Steven kings House is in Bangor and he filmed the movie Thinner out of a hotel in Camden called Beloins.  Fort Knox and the Penobscott Bay Observatory is right over the new bridge.  Fort Point State Park is down the road a ways as is Perry's Nut House wich has a real Mummy from Egypt on display.  There is alot to do in the local area so go check it out have fun but please respect the fact that it is a cemetary.
