Bucksport history:

We are a small coastal town with a lot of charm and some interesting historical sites. Check out our Main Street and see the historical sites of the Buck Memorial in the local graveyard with it's erie story of witches and trials. There is a folk lore story about a witch putting a curse on Jonathan Buck's grave because he had the witch (Sarah Ware) put to death for practicing witchery. When Jonathan Buck died and his grave stone was put on his grave a leg complete with a foot appeared on the grave stone within days of the stone being placed over the grave. That stone was removed and a new one put in its place and yet another leg with a foot attached appeared on the second stone. Thus the folk lore of witch's curses.
