Picture of the week

One of the creepiest sights in the BAIRNET area is the tomb of Colonel Jonathan Buck, founder of Bucksport, Maine.

Colonel Buck served as local judge. In one court case, according to local legend, he sentenced a woman to be hanged, and she swore a witch's curse against him.

After Buck's death, the shape of a foot and leg appeared on his tombstone. No amount of sandblasting or chemical stain remover has succeeded in removing this mysterious shape.

For the record, no one has ever been hanged for witchcraft in Maine. But that does not mean that no witch has ever been hanged.....
