There is something about a late evening ghost story around the campfire that is both scary and fascinating. Maine has some legendary ghost stories and maybe one of the most famous ghost stories from Maine is Catherine's Ghost.

It's widely believed that Catherine was traveling on the road with her husband or boyfriend, after their wedding or prom night in Bar Harbor, when they were in some kind of accident.

The story goes that Catherine lost her head in the accident and her significant other was never found. It's believed that Catherine wanders Catherine's Hill and the Blackwoods area searching for her head and her missing love.

Travelers who claim to have seen Catherine's ghost on the hill most commonly describe a woman approaching the traveler asking for a ride, sometimes to Bar Harbor. Catherine is said to be dressed in a light blue evening or ball gown. Travelers who decline the ghost's request suffer various consequences.
