Ep. 260 – Haunted Islands of Maine

Ep. 260 – Haunted Islands of Maine

Based on its location, Maine has been a prime spot for explorers. There are 4600 islands off the coast of Maine and each of these islands has its own unique history. Some of that history is tragic and it is these grievous stories that seem to have led to some haunting experiences. Outer Heron Island reportedly has buried treasure, a haunted cave and apparitions on the beach. There is Jewell Island with its residual ghost soldiers and stories of buried treasure. Boon Island has its very own haunted lighthouse. Long Island has its phantom ghost ship and crew. And listener Katrina Ray-Saulis joins me to share a mostly unknown history about Malaga Island that highlights the racism that led to some cruel treatment and ultimately some haunting activity. Join me as we explore the Haunted Islands of Maine! The Moment in Oddity was suggested by Susan Elizabeth Whigham and features Why Does Dracula Wear a Tuxedo and This Month in History features the Confederates destroy the Merrimac to prevent its capture.

    My great great great grandparents, John "Jerry" Murphy and Salome Darling, were residents of Malaga Island. I’ve visited the island at least once a year with my father for about 25 years (since I was a little girl). My family is the only Malaga family who still lives in the area (within 30 miles of Malaga). I’ve never witnessed/experienced any paranormal activity on Malaga, nor have I ever heard of any such thing related to Malaga. So allow me to fact check you… FACT: Malaga Island is NOT haunted.
