The pine-forested rocky coast from Boothbay to Southport hides dark mysteries and eerie haunts. Meet the ghosts of Mainers past who just could not leave this picturesque shore life, even in death. The soul of a lighthouse keeper's wife seems to linger on Burnt Island. The spirits of the Opera House remain hidden behind the curtain but come out to play when the living are away. One local might even have returned from the grave to greet his neighbors on a brisk spring afternoon. Investigative reporter Greg Latimer takes a journey to the Boothbay region's haunted side, where the ethereal residents are unrestrained by mortal bonds.
