This is such a cool place to explore some of the history of Maine. It's a bit dark in some places, which can feel creepy if you're prone to feeling creepy. Take a flashlight to avoid that. There are fn events here and you can take a quick side trip to the Penobscot Narrows Observatory if you like heights and beautiful views of Maine!
