Quick Overview

Liza Gardner Walsh explores the history of Fort Knox and some of the Indian legends of the area from before the fort was built; provides interviews of staff and eyewitness accounts of ghost sightings at the fort; and she offers a fun look at how the fort makes the most of its attention by hosting its annual Fright at the Fort—called the “best Halloween experience in Maine”—and the summer Paranormal/Psychic Fair. Woven throughout, Walsh recounts her own haunted adventure when she spent a night locked in the fort with the East Coast Ghost Trackers.
Every year visitors flock to Maine’s Fort Knox, near the mouth of the Penobscot River. They are drawn by the thousands for its glimpse into Maine’s military past, but also for its haunted aspects. The fort was catapulted to national attention when the prime-time TV show "Ghost Hunters" filmed an episode there. Since no shots were ever fired from the fort, who might the ghost or ghosts be? Now, author Liza Gardner Walsh delves into the creepy nature of the fort to find the answer. She explores the history of the fort and some of the Indian legends of the area from before the fort was built; provides interviews of staff and eyewitness accounts of ghost sightings at the fort; and she offers a fun look at how the fort makes the most of its attention by hosting its annual Fright at the Fort—called the “best Halloween experience in Maine”—and the summer Paranormal/Psychic Fair. Woven throughout, Walsh recounts her own haunted adventure when she spent a night locked in the fort with the East Coast Ghost Trackers.
