Bucksport is a town in Hancock County, Maine, United States. It is a historic town across the Penobscot River estuary from Fort Knox and the Penobscot Narrows Bridge. A major feature of Bucksport is the Downtown Waterfront Walkway and an old railroad station that now houses the local Historical Society. Here you can learn about the town’s eventful past through photos, exhibits and lore, including the legend of a witch’s curse placed upon the town’s founder, Jonathan Buck. To this very day, evidence of the curse can be seen on the Buck Monument located on Route 1.
The first inhabitants of Bucksport were a 5,000-year-old prehistoric culture known as the Red Paint People, but in1763, Colonel Jonathan Buck settled permanently at what was known as Plantation No. 1, building a sawmill on Mill Creek, as well as a house and store. By 1775 the plantation had 21 families. Legend has it that Buck burned his mistress for being a witch, and that she promised to return and seek vengeance on the town. It is believed to be her foot and leg that appears on his tombstone, reappearing each time it has been replaced.
