Real Haunted House

Captain Buck’s Tombstone

Bucksport, Maine

Long ago, a man named Captain Buck fell in love with a woman who was known to be a witch. In order to protect his reputation, he left her for another woman. The witch cursed him, saying she would leave her foot upon his grave. Today, an outline of a foot is seen on his tombstone. The stone has been scrubbed and even replaced; the outline still remains.

Back when the sighting first happened they did replace the tombstone and it reappeared. Yes there is more to the story, all one has to do is their research and go visit the tombstone. I grew up in Bucksport =)

I am from Bucksport. The stone is real but has never been replaced. That is a rumor. Jonathan Buck had the woman hanged in a tree in that same graveyard, which is why she promised to dance on his grave. His house is still standing to the immediate right of the graveyard.
